Papercraft - Distressed Suitcase Gift Box

June 2, 2017


Isn't this cute? I made this as an idea to house a little gift of a sewing set or gift tag making set. While making it I thought it could also be a fitting gift box for someone who is going travelling, whether it's some English tea bags for a friend heading to Spain on holiday for a couple of weeks or some fun mini travel essentials, vouchers, cash or whatever for someone planning on jetting around for a while longer.


It could equally be a  great gift box for someone who is leaving for good and would make a cute little memory box which you could slot some photos, memory cards and keepsakes into. Come to think of it you could also use it to give a gift to a grown up child heading off on honeymoon as a little something extra after the wedding gift giving is done.  So many uses and so easy to make.


I will be doing a video tutorial for this as it's a little bit difficult to explain how to get the curvature at the front of the box in writing so I am recording a tutorial. I've made this in a teeny tiny suitcase size measuring 2 x 1 inches and a larger one measuring 6 x 4 inches. This one in the picture measures 5 x 3 and is just over 2 inches deep so there's plenty of room. The larger one I fitted a divider into and slotted two boxes of tea bags into.


For this one I used Dapper Denim cardstock and a Dapper Denim paper from the brand new Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (both from Stampin' Up!)  I used the Thank You stamp from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set which I love. Just for effect I added some Glitter Enamel dots which are fab and one of my favourite new catalogue items. Everything I used is linked below so you can see how few 'ingredients' this one took.


Thanks for dropping in as always and have a great weekend, it's almost here!
