Vintage Suitcase

Check out this awesome project! I keep an eye on Follow The Paper Trail on you-tube and when Laura showed this vintage suitcase I had to make it straight away. You can buy the pattern at Laura's site and she shows how to make the suitcase and decorate inside on her u-stream channel. Also check out the Trunk Full of Memories project too... it looks excellent!

The straps are made from Grungepaper using D-Rings and Hitch Fasteners.

The top has a Grungepaper pocket and I have put some Pen Nibs, Vials, Film Strip Ribbon, Hinge Clips, a Pocket Watch with a Timepiece and Game Spinners.
Laura's pattern has a mini album in the bottom section but I made some postcards using Tim Holtz stamps sets, Postcards and Stuff to Say. There are also some pieces of 7 Gypsies Mini Ephemera.

I thought it will be empty box. But I wonder to watch that third photograph. There are lots of thing you saved in it. I have one same bag in stainless steel.
