Materials:

  • A small vintage suitcase with an interior color you are pleased with
  • Spray paint for the outside (I used Heirloom Ivory by Krylon)
  • Laser printed pictures of brides and grooms or other wedding images
  • Lace, fringe and trim for interior of case
  • Faux doves for interior of case (optional)
  • Feathers or floral arrangement for interior of case (optional)
  • Paper ephemera for interior garland (I used sheet music and brown craft paper)

 

Instructions:

  1. Clean exterior of suitcase and dry thoroughly.
     
  2. Spray paint two coats of paint.  I paint right over the hardware and handle.

  3. After your paint has dried thoroughly, use basic decoupage technique to adhere images where you want them.

  4. Decorate the interior of the case with trims and a garland.

  5. For the inside of the case, I tacked some fringe around the edges to soften the hard lines of the suitcase.  Then I made a garland from lace and paper ephemera attached to two vintage cotton doves.  I used pins to secure the doves so that I could remove them when I wanted to shut the suitcase.
