I love the look of old vintage suitcase and the many possibilities for storage. A few months ago, I was hurrying out of my driveway, when I spotted this suitcase. I couldn't pass this treasure out, specially that I have seen some for sale for more then 50 dollars. My treasure is in pretty good condition, so I just add a bit of color, without taking the vintage flair way
1. Here is what I did:
Clean inside and out, including letting it sit open outside in the sunshine.
Bought a variety of scrapbook paper (on 50% off). To get the apperance of patchwork I used 7 different patterns of the 12x12 in. paper,and cut out each by 6x6 in.. That seem to work well for my project, my briefcase is about 28x21 in.
I Started with the corner edges, and use modge pod. Is very important to keep smoothing over.
The paper that is lifted, should be glue after the bottow part is glued.
