Teacher's Week: Matchbox Tower

reposted with updates:
Lovin this EXCLUSIVE SU Big Shot Matchbox Die. It's almost as fun as the cake. This matchbox tower contains some school essentials: paper clips, post-it note, rubber bands. They are kept in each drawer. Maybe one can be also for pennies? Teachers always have that! As an after thought: I retook this photo with lines on the pencil.

Top of tower with apple - easily replaced with Teacher's initial.

Tower drawer pulls are 3 "pencils". Use the Word Window Punch to create this. The pencil are snipped to a point, use the Black Stampin' Write Pen for the tip. As an after thought, I added 3 black lines between the pencil and the "eraser".....ahhh............much better.

Matchbox contents revealed:

Each matchbox is not attached to each other, they are loose. The alphabet band goes all the way around the 3 boxes. Each matchbox can be rearranged in whatever color suits best. Love the flexibility!
