I was watching a video from a Stampin' Up conference and one of the presenters showed a lovely project she had made to display new product. You can see Becky Roberts' suitcase here. I couldn't wait to make one! Unable to purchase her tutorial, I set about working out the measurements myself and made my prototype out of retired card and paper. I was quite happy with the finished suitcase/box and rather than waste all that effort, decided it would make a great gift for an 80th birthday. Having already decorated the box with the retired papers I had a bit of a challenge making mostly feminine cards to fill it, but I think it is OK.
the 3 X 3 cards and envelopes.

I hope you like it as I certainly enjoyed making it.
