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!

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!
