I distressed and altered this tin suitcase by dry sponging gold paint on the edges and sides (whatever direction you make your swipes, keep them going in that direction throughout the box). I added the Glitz rub ons (2) to the top and the side then sealed everything with clear acrylic spray. This is a quick and easy project and would make a great gift.
The box can be filled with mini photo albums of ancestors, family, friends or mini vacations. Or a large accordion album will fit inside perfectly with room in the lid for a pocket like a vintage suitcase. Holiday banners fit perfectly in two stacks (see following images).
4 x 6 photo albums fit one way and 8.5 x 5.5 fit the other.
