LIVE: Suitcase Box for Mini Album | Papercraft with Helen

Today we are making a suitcase gift box made from scratch! 

I will be getting a helping hand to decorate the suitcase with the Simply Made Crafts Decorative Fittings die set – this is such a versatile die set, and going from the 5 star reviews you’ve been leaving, you’re using this set for lots of different bag projects. I am so glad to hear this as this is why I designed this set.

Part 2 will be a mini album to fit inside! Make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss it!
