Travel Memorabilia Luggage Box

Hey all!  I get so excited when I get to share my SVG Cuts DT projects with you all! I don't know what it is... if it's the heart that I put into each piece I cut, or something more along the lines of how much I adore Leo and Mary... but my projects for them seem special to me :)


Anyway, for the LONGEST TIME - like since last year - I've been wanting luggage/suitcase cut files.  Well, who knew that by combining various kits and collections that I would be able to make one on my own! It's actually the AWESOME handle from Ryan's Playdate SVG Kit that just did it - I knew when I saw that, I HAD to make it.


So... I wanted a rounded one and a rectangular one.  I pondered upon this for a while trying to think what I can use to make it... then I had my A-HA! moment. I just love one of those moments.  They don't come enough.  If only I had them daily... It was to use the letter D from 3D Letters SVG Kit, omit the inside opening of it, and voila! it becomes the right shape for it!

Anyway, here's my project! :)

Soo fun, isn't it? They are the cutest little luggages! and makes me so excited every time I see this! I LOVE vacations!

I HAVE to keep all the little tickets, cards, maps, luggage tags... they form the special part of my vacation memories, and I look at them and reminisce the wonderful time I had going to all those places. Now, with these boxes, I have a place to keep them all!

I can't say enough about these handles. They are just SOOO PERFECT... and so easy to make. Makes me want to add them to all my projects! lol... Oh, did you notice the tags? Looks like Leo and Mary are going on vacation! These tags have an opening, so you can write up a customized message or a name and insert inside it! FUN!

I just HAD to put some luggage stickers on these. I really REALLY wanted to add more (to the back of them) but I thought that I may scare you away with all the collections that I've used, so I decided to scale it down a bit :) There's a Statue of Liberty freebie - would've been PERFECT for NY, thought about using the elephants from Exotic Treasures of India for obviously India, and cherry blossoms for Japan... so many possibilities!

So, in order to attach the lid to the bottom box, I needed to make a slit in the corner of the box and attach that panel to the bottom box. Just like shown below:

It makes a pretty stable luggage! (Still please handle with care - and do not put these in the belt conveyers! :))

So... one more thing that I CANNOT leave home to go away is my camera. It is such an important part of me, if I forget it, or even have the battery run out of it, dampens my day :( I like to capture every single moment... and that is why I thought it would be so cool to have a camera box! I took the short cylinder from the December Gifts SVG Kit and adhered it onto the matchbox from Crisp Days of Fall SVG Kit.

and with a box that slides out, you can keep all your little keepsakes in here! :)

  2. As I laid in the hospital bed I started thinking that I had a show to do. I was hoping the Doctor would put me together so I could do the show.
