Hi friends! Can you believe it's almost Halloween? Today we are going to take a little break from Halloween so I can share this big project I've been working on for a friend. I have so many friends who keep up with me from my blog. Lots of family friends from Mankato, the place I grew up. One of these family friends reads my blog every day and has asked me to make her lots of different things.
She saw these suitcases that I made last year http://jennicanknit.blogspot.com/2011/12/scrappy-suitcases.html and asked me to make them. All you need is your paper scraps (you know you have lots of those), a paper cutter and lots of patience.
It's like a puzzle... you keep adding pieces as you go, with a little fussy cutting around the latches. These suitcases were bought at Crafts Direct http://www.craftsdirect.com/
I did the inside too so you can pop them open and display something cute inside. I'm working on a Christmas set for myself that I will share soon.
It was my pleasure to make these for such a lovely person. I hope you enjoy them Juel!
