TUTORIAL: C131 Man of the Moment Vintage Suitcase Mini Album BY MARIE SMITH

This suitcase mini album is ideal for preserving memories of the special men in our lives – fathers, grandfathers, husbands, sons, brothers.

The paper collection is as suitable for old, vintage photos as it is for a young, modern “Man of the moment”. You may add all kinds of steampunk elements such as metal gears or fob watches- check out some of these wonderful metal embellishments offered by FabScraps.

For This Project You Will Need:

  • Black suitcase mini album base with closure
  • C131 Man of the moment paper pack
  • Fabscraps white craft glue
  • 2 brads
  • Piece of canvas for reinforcing the handle
  • Slider mechanism
