    Just thought I'd share my latest project with ya'll. I've had fun working on this and now am actively looking for a companion case to go with it that I can 'recover' as I've got lot's of labels left! I also want to find just that special bauble to put onto the front clasp.

    You are so creative. How do you ever find time? That is fantastic!
     
  3. I love it!! :wub: I have a bad habit of buying vintage train cases and suitcases with projects like this in mind. Someday, I will get around to it!!

    Thanks for the inspiration! Maybe I will try a few this summer.

    Thanks ladies!

    Linda, my artwork & studio are like therapy for me. If I didn't get out and be creative I'd be a big mush of brain matter.

    Lizzie, I used E6000 for the first time. It's got a bit of a smell but I really liked the consitancy and the hold that it provides. Fairly inexpensive too!

    Very cute!!

    I've done several of all sizes with vintage travel stickers and sold them at the antique mall.
    (I make color copies of the stickers at a print shop so not to ruin my originals.)

    That's beautiful!! And time consuming, I'm sure. Bravo, that looks like some pretty long and hard work!
