Welcome to the Thinking Outside the Box Blog Hop! This month we are making Suitcases! I LOVE the suitcase I created with a bridal theme using Stampin Up's new Wonderful Moments Stamp Set and I paired it with the Petal Promenade Printed Paper for a soft and gorgeous look!
Video coming Soon!
Gather Your Supplies:
- 2 pieces of 6 1/2 x 5 3/8" Petal Pink Cardstock
- 7 1/2 x 3/4" Grapefruit Grove Cardstock
- 4 3/8 x 3 1/4" Printed Paper
- Scrap of White for die cutting
- Scraps of Grapefruit Grove cardstock to punch
- Wonderful Momeents Stamp Set
- Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove Ink Pads
- Trimmer with scoring blade
- 1" circle punch
- Triple Banner Punch
- Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon
- Glue Dots
- 6 1/4 x 4 1/4" Grapefruit Grove Cardstock (for card)
- 4 1/8 x 3 Petal Pink
- 3 x 1/2" DSP
To create box, score at 1" on all sides of one of the larger pieces of Petal Pink Cardstock. On the second, trim 1/8" on top and side and then score at 1" on all sides. This will create a slightly larger box bottom and allow it to open easier.
To create the corners, punch 4- 1" circles and fold in half and open and fold in half perpendicular to create 4 even sections of the circle. Snip one edge to center and then "wrap" the corner of the box.
To create handle, take 3/4" strip and punch ends with Triple Banner Punch. "form" into handle in hands and then adhere ends to box.
SO BEAUTIFUL!! Wouldn't this make an amazing Wedding Gift Card Box or Shower Gift Card Holder?

Dena – I love this DSP and would never have thought to use this DSP with the suitcase but it is absolutely perfect! Love, love, love this suitcase!
Love this! I already knew I wanted the stamp set but now you’ve made me need the paper too!
Oh I love how you have used this paper and the colour combo – so clever and beautiful!
I love the color combo you use. It’s a combo that looks vintage
Great idea to take a bridal theme! Love your suitcase!
Super cute! Very pretty and elegant too!
Dena, I love how you have paired the DSP with the case, I never would have gone that, it’s gorgeous!
