All Things Pretty Vintage Suitcase - Creative Fingers

Hi Everyone

Today we have a new challenge over at Creative Fingers, and our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.  I was so lucky to be able to get to play with their Vintage Suitcase Box (the file formats include PDF, SVG, MTC and WPC) - it really is beautiful.  This is not a project that you can put together in 5 minutes, but it is so worth taking your time over this (and there is a step by step video here) - you really end up with something that everyone will 'drool' over.

Here is my finished suitcase.

The papers I used for this are from K&Co called 'Julianne' and kraft card stock.  As you can see I also got out my sewing machine and a Martha Stewart punch to add a little decoration to the trim.

Those little green brad 'buttons' I have had in my stash for ages, and I just loved adding them for a little extra detail.

This box is actually going to be a Christmas gift for my mum - I have filled it with handmade cards for various occasions so that she has her own supply to use throughout the year.

Thanks so much for joining me today - I hope you will join in with the 'Anything Goes' challenge over at Creative Fingers and check out the rest of the projects from the DT.
