To put paper on the outside of the suitcase I first sprayed the backs of two 6x6 pieces with spray adhesive and laid the paper down on the die, sticky-side-up. Then I pressed a piece of matboard to the sticky side of the paper and ran the die through the Big Shot. Not only did I guarantee that my paper would be positioned correctly, but the pressure of the Big Shot reinforced a tight hold with the spray adhesive. (A tip from Eileen Hull! Happy Birthday, Eileen!)
I found a cool clasp in my stash and used a leathery paper (also from my stash) to make the strap that holds the box closed. I added a book ring through the handle and then attached a metal charm using a jump ring. I decorated the metal charm with another chipboard piece from the collection.
To put paper inside the suitcase I used the die to cut the general shapes and then trimmed them down to fit. I used the Scalloped Circle Pop-up Die inside the suitcase and decorated it with chipboard pieces from the collection.
I thought this could be a fun gift for someone about to take a trip. Throw a gift card or some foreign money in the box and you have a delightful little present!
