Scrappy Suitcases

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!


  1. Cute idea! I'm assuming you used modge podge?

  2. Such a wonderful idea. Would be great to use for a themed gift box...maybe for penpals or sewing.

  3. Nice job on the new look to your blog! Cute case too!

  4. another awesomely delightful project... SUPER terrific!!

  5. Wow, I just love these. I guess I will have to copy your ideas again...but I don't feel guilty...ha ha. Thanks for sharing.
