Paint the suitcase inside and out.
Stick a ribbon around the straw hat and glue a flower where the ribbon crosses.
Draw a circle on the scrapbook paper using the circumference of the embroidery ring. Cut the circle out a bit larger, so that the paper can easily be stretched over the ring.
Spray a little water on the paper to make it more flexible and fix it into the embroidery ring.
Punch out a nice text or quote and stick it onto the paper in the embroidery ring. Please note: don’t stick on the letters until the paper is dry.
Cut out various text cards and ink the edges with Distress Ink from Ranger.
Stick the cards inside the lid of the suitcase.
Wind jute string around the glass tube and fill it with shells.
Fashion a coil of rope for decoration.
Glue a clothespin to the back of the lid, so that the suitcase stays open.
Use some of your own knick-knacks, postcards and souvenirs to make the suitcase more personal.
