vintage suitcase redo :: diy

here's an easy way to give new life to your old suitcase.  as long as it has a hard cover, you can apply modge podge right to the surface and adhere paper or fabric.  above, you can see i used a rotary cutter to get the best cut, but even with that, the corners were a little ragged.  simple fix: cover with lace.

when purchasing suitcases from garage sales or flea markets, always be sure to check and make sure the inside is in good condition.  also, the latches/locks must work.  but, i never worry about the outside scratches or other damage... i just have to pick out my favorite pattern for cover-up!
