Matchbox Vanity Table

Collections: 3D Chipboard

Product type: Collage Supplies

Tags: Die-Cut 3D, Miniature

NOTE: Items cut from the thick, light-grey chipboard burn easily so the laser-cutting process may leave charcoal residue behind. Save yourself a headache, and just wipe the cut edges of these items down with a dry paper towel before assembling or painting. (The material may have changed since the photo was taken.)



Inspired by some (inspired) vanities and chests built from matchboxes by Design Team Member Laura Carson, this is a 1:12 scale vanity made to use 6 Diamond brand matchboxes as the drawers (you'll need to buy your own at your local grocery store; the matchboxes measure 1-3/8" x 7/16" x 2-1/16").

This is a laser-cut, heavy chipboard flat kit with the slots and tabs precut (you'll just need to secure with a bit of white glue).

Total height is approx. 5-1/2" (by about 3-1/8" wide x 2-1/8" deep). Height from base to tabletop is 2-1/2" (and you can add small box feet if you like).

The top is split to hinge about 1/2" from the back wall (and opens like a vintage school desk) so you can hide items inside and open the lid without running into the fancy mirror frame/detailing on the back.

One of the photos shows using the Round Black Knobs (for scale).

Miz Bella made a Fairy Magic Vanity (see the wide photo below). More info in the blog and/or see the supply list.
