When I first saw the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection the first thing that I thought of was making a vintage suitcase.
and the best part, here are the flowers!

Other products: Card Stock, Buckles, Embossing Powder, Lace, Ribbon and Bling from my stash, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.
The suitcase that I made was a simple box and cover measuring 6 1/2″ wide x 4 1/4″ deep x 2 1/2″ tall. To make the box open like a suitcase I cut the back corners and attached the long edge to the back of the base. After the base for the suitcase is made, cover it in your favorite DP. I added some straps made out of 1/2″ strips of paper and took the handle off a box I bought at the dollar store and traced it out on the same paper. I made my flowers using the Striped Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set by stamping, embossing and die cutting the flowers and finished them off with some Prills in the center.
I hope to see you again soon. I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
