I was inspired a while back by a post on SouleMama to find an old suitcase for Gianna to put her dress up things in. Large enough to hold it all but short enough to slip under her bed or stand up against the wall. I found a suitcase at our local thrift store for 50 CENTS. I wanted to decorate it somehow to give it some vintage charm so it wasn’t like I was just giving her an old suitcase for Christmas. Then had the inspiration to use paper dolls to decorate it. A quick google search and I found these Betsy McCall dolls all ready to print out. I purchased some matte Modpodge and glued them on.
I am actually pretty much finished with it, but I haven’t had a chance to sneak off her dress up things to put them inside. I’ll post the finished project too. What I haven’t pictured is, decorating the second side and the fabric letters I modged on too.
