Secrets in a suitcase

Hello All,  I needed a handmade Birthday gift for a crafting friend who loves to sew and knit.  We give each other a little something on Birthdays and Christmas time to accompany our bought presents.

I've had this little chipboard suitcase for some time and just never got round to doing anything with it.  I started out painting the outside and inside with white acrylic paint.  I then used some gorgeous Marianne Design Paper Bloc Pretty Pastels. The inside papers is from the same bloc.  All the die cuts are from Marianne Designs, scissors, buttons,  the little cut out holding the threads are just cut out from the paper and glued onto stronger card.  I think she is going to love it.

There is a full recipe of my wee suitcase below this post. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge:  Anything goes this week.

My Craft Spot Challenge:  Would like to see something really Girly Girl

Tando Creative Challenge 44:  This time round would love to see something Leap off the Page.



All Dies and Papers are available Here
