Directions

STEP 1

  • Sand front of each drawer knob to create slightly flattened surface for gem. Remove drawers.

STEP 2

  • Paint chest and drawers white; let dry.

STEP 3

  • Rub light brown ink over painted surfaces to create distressed look; buff with cloth.

STEP 4

  • Trim foil sheets to fit drawer fronts; make each drawer a different color.

STEP 5

  • Mark placement of hole for knob. Align Dahlia #1 die so it is centered over hole. Die cut flower from foil.

STEP 6

  • Emboss each foil piece with different texture; M-Bossabilities feature two patterns on each embossing folder. For balanced effect, do not align foil with design edges; allow designs to extend beyond foil edges. Hold foil in desired position using removable tape.

STEP 7

  • Lightly sand embossed surface of each foil piece. Lightly ink raised designs with white chalk ink; buff with cloth.

STEP 8

  • Adhere foil pieces to drawers; let dry. Adhere matching gems to drawer knobs.

STEP 9

  • Spray entire piece with clear sealer; let dry.

Tip

  • 1. Think big! Use full-size sheets of embossed foil to cover large drawer fronts on an entryway table, craft studio cabinet, or home office file drawer. Piece panels together in a trendy mosaic design.
