No tutorial, but you don't really need one. All I did was use Mod Podge to adhere heavy duty scrapbook paper (Graphic45) to the front of each drawer and also the sides and the back. I then used all sorts of Christmas images from collage sheets, and small doodads like old keys, swirly metal paper clips, bingo markers, etc. to decorate them. The little knobs on the drawers are by Tim Holtz. My major hint would be to try to lay out every drawer before gluing anything down, so you make sure everything looks balanced.  Smiley

Ahhhh so the box is bought with the little drawers in it? I was trying to figure out how you made the drawers and the partitions.

Oh no, I didn't make the box. I purchased that at Hobby Lobby last year. I don't know if they make them like that any more, but I have seen some that are pretty similar.  Smiley

The both turned out wonderful...and the good thing is that they will get better with age because of the wonderful papers and items you used!

What fun for all to find tiny things to put inside!  I am going to keep my eyes opened for more "odd" things for next year! Grin

My son was eyeing the mirrored one at Target. He would love it if I made something like that.

I love this. I've been wanting to make some as well. I like your design; I may have to borrow it for next year.

I love the idea of this, it makes me want to go out and make one for my daughter to enjoy when she gets older.  Great job!
