Shabby Suitcase

More and more I am loving the vintage trend. Looking through some photography blogs trying to get some ideas for photo shoots, I saw a few that had vintage luggage for props in the photos. I thought that was such a great idea that I went online and bought a set. I then used it in this photo shoot with my sisters family. Then, with all of the craft blogs that I follow.... one day one of them featured another bloggers craft idea of creating a shabby suitcase. So I checked out her blog and thought the project looked pretty easy and decided I thought it was cute and I wanted to do it. It would go with the luggage I already had and it all adds to the theme of my living room in the basement, which is traveling. Not only is it cute decoration, but its also more storage.

I thought the suitcase on her blog was cute, but I thought I could come up with something better than sheet music. I wanted hand writing on mine. So I printed a bunch of hand written letters. Then I went to DI and I found a suite case that I liked for only $3. After that all you need is some Mod Podge to glue it onto the suitcase.

I finished it today and I like how it turned out. A very cheap and easy project.
Here is what the suite case looked like when I bought it from DI.

It even looks cute inside. Orange with poka dots!

Here is what it looks like now!

I liked the idea of adding some flowers like she did.

Now it has made friends and is now sitting with my other luggage.
