A pretty suitcase needs to say something about travel...right?
I printed this on the back of a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook paper that has black and white stripes on the back so that they just show through around the edges.
Then I tore it around the edges into a nice soft "roundish" shape. I kept the scraps just in case.
I applied the text to the centre of the suitcase using good ol Mod Podge and then applied another paper to the sides to frame the print.
I also distressed the edges of the text printed paper with a turquoise blue ink to frame the sentiment and added some flat back Swarovski crystals here and there to add a little sparkle.
This is why you don't throw away any scraps until you are sure you are done - the little bits of paper left over made perfect flower rosettes...so cute!
My son informed me today that he thought I should only use this suitcase for carry-on and not checked luggage as it might get wrecked! I think that means he likes it!
I have another suitcase I plan on doing tomorrow - does anyone else have a good travel quote? I would love another idea!
