Create this one-of-a-kind phone charging station using Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts (GSL) chipboard and Graphic 45 (G45) papers.
Prepare the box pieces of the GSL Hidden Drawer Book Box.
Use G45 Communique paper to cover the inside of the box pieces. Use gel medium. Sponge edges with ink.
Using Glossy Accents (or similar) assemble the bottom and sides of the box.
Attach the top to the box, as shown. Make sure to sponge all edges with ink.
Use Graphic 45 Communique paper and gel medium to cover the top and bottom of the box. Cut strips of G45 Typography paper to cover the sides of the box. Sponge edges with ink.
Prepare the pieces of the drawer from the GSL Hidden Drawer Book Box.
Use G45 Communique paper to cover the inside of the drawer pieces. Use gel medium. Sponge edges with ink. DO NOT PUT PAPER ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DRAWER.
Use Glossy Accents to assemble the drawer.
Use G45 black washi tape to wrap the outside edges of the drawer, including the bottom, if desired.
Use G45 Communique paper to cover the drawer "false front." Attach a G45 Antique Metal Door Pull to the center of the panel.
Attach approximately 1/8" thickness of scrap chipboard to the drawer front. Then attach the false front cover (with the handle) to the drawer.
Prepare the pieces of the GSL Phone/Tablet Holder.
Using a wrapping method, attach G45 Typography paper to the holder base. Miter corners.
Wrap edges of the base and burnish the paper. Use gel medium to attach the paper to the chipboard surface.
Flip the base over. This is the top view of the Holder base.
Repeat the process with the larger holder divider, using G45 Communique paper.
Cut another piece of G45 Communique paper to cover the back of the panel.
Repeat the process with the small holder divider, using G45 Communique paper.
Assemble the GSL Phone Holder and attach it to the top of the Hidden Drawer Book Box with strong adhesive. Slide the drawer into the book box.
Select four (4) bingo tiles to use as feet for the box.
Use Glossy Accents to glue the bingo tiles to the bottom of the book box. Glue one tile to each corner as shown.
Choose GSL chipboard shapes to decorate your charging station. For a list of items used, see the supply list. Color each shape with distress ink.
Attach the GSL shapes and the G45 elements from the Communique Collection to the front of the charging station.
Use strong glue to attach the items.
Glue G45 images behind the chipboard to mimic the look of an old-fashioned telephone dial.
Turn the station around and add more decor to the back.
Place a chipboard element at an angle to act as a charging cord holder, as shown.
This is the back of the charging station.
This is the front of the station, with the drawer closed.
Place chargers, cords, earbuds, and more into the drawer when they are not in use.
The charging station can accommodate two phones.
The charging station can also accommodate a tablet, with or without a tablet cover.
