Tonic Studios Birthday Week Day 3 - Delightful Dresser Tutorial (afiliate)

The delightful Dresser and Advent Accessory Gift Box Die Set is another of the fabulous launches for the Tonic Studios Birthday Week!  
These are my affiliate links to the die set -
UK -
This is a very large die set with 51 dies and can be used to make a dresser with various  types of decoration, an advent calendar and numerous other 3D boxes. You can also see how I made a different dresser and adapted the dies to make a 3 drawer box in my video here -

Some of the beautiful lattice panels can also be used in card making. 

This is the die set with 51 dies in total! 

To make the dresser you will need

Sturdy card for the base - I used Craft Perfect Bright White 300gsm Smooth Card

Craft Tacky Glue (or hi tack tape)

Patterned paper to decorate

Small brad


To make the dresser

1. Cut out the main die twice and fold the score lines.

2. Glue the 2 bases together as shown.

3. Die cut 12 of the shelf dies and 12 of the drawer dies.

4. Glue the shelf die cuts together as shown in the steps above.

5. Glue the 12 finished shelves into the dresser.

6. Glue the drawer die cuts together as shown in the steps above.

7. Glue the shelves into the dresser.

8. Die cut 2 of the door dies.

9. Fold the score lines as shown above.

10. Fold the sides in and glue as shown to make a 3D door frame.

11. Fold the last piece over and glue in place leaving the outside tab as the hinge.

12. Die cut the top pieces for the dresser and glue together as shown.

13. Glue onto the top of the dresser.

14. Die cut 2 of each of the dies shown and fold on the score lines.

15. Glue together to form a base for the dresser.

16. Glue onto the bottom of the dresser.

NB. I have done all the basic dresser die cutting first and then cut the decorative panels, therefore I have left the sides of the base unglued until the patterned paper is added. You can decorate first if you like.

17. Die cut 4 panels of patterned paper and glue 2 back to back. Glue to the insides of the door frames.

18. Using the dies shown, cut out the decorative panels and glue in place.


19. Using the dies shown, cut out the decorative panels and glue in place. Glue a 12.5cm x 9cm panel of patterned paper onto the back of the dresser.

20. Cut out the dies shown on the right and glue onto the door and bottom of the dresser. Add ribbon to the handles

21. Die cut 2 of the larger dies in white card and 1 of the smaller in patterned paper. Glue together and add the brad.

22. Attach the brad to the centre of the top of the dresser.
