Welcome to my post in the Creating the Crafty Life "Take Me Away" Blog Hop!!! If you are coming from Leslie's Blog, then you are on the right track! If not, I encourage you to start from the beginning of the hop at Misty's Blog.
The theme of our hop is vacations/destinations, so I made a cute little travel suitcase out of an Altoids tin. It went from this:
I covered the tin in patterned paper and added appropriate stickers/embellishments to make the suitcase appear as if it's been "around." The handle is made out of a cut strip of leather and I adhered brad heads to the ends to make it look like it's fastened to the suitcase.
I continued the theme on the inside, adding bits of appropriate papers showing various destinations. I made a tiny mini out of chipboard and covered the "pages" in matching patterned paper, then bound them together with a small dog tag chain.
A closer look at the contents. :)
I hope you like my project.... I really enjoyed making it for this hop. Makes me want to go on vacation right now!
