Just got home from Michaels. I think I got carried away at the store. I’m promising myself to scrapbook recent events soon after it has happened. I have so much memorabilia from 2 year ago that I have to include in our Adventure Book. So my mission these next few weeks: our Honeymoon scrapbook!
Wish me luck!
A couple of years ago I found a vintage luggage at the Kobey’s Swap Meet, our local outdoor market. I wanted to incorporate this luggage as our card box. But when it came down to it, I didn’t want to ruin the luggage.
So I found this decorative cardboard luggage box at Michaels. Fitting, since we planned our honeymoon in Europe.
Since I had extra muslin bags from our favors, I used it for our card box. I split the bags so it would be lighter and that way I did not need to sew the top. I stenciled the letters C-A-R-D-S with the same paint I used for the key ring bags.
I punctured a hole on each side of the luggage and strung the above bags with the same twine I used for our invites. And Voilà!, our wedding card box:

I used my vintage luggage for stacking purposes. This turned out better than I imagined.
Haven’t posted much because of our wedding. We are currently in Paris!! It has been fun! When I get back, I’ll be posting all our wedding details!
Till then, cheers!

Thanks to my parents, they have booked our honeymoon for our wedding present! This is how I feel right now:
“We goin? Are you joking?” All I’m missing is the backpack filled with goodies!
