    Bottom Suitcase

    The bottom suitcase consists of a top/lid a box bottom andthe dividing insert pieces.

    Bottom: Cut Soft Suede cardstock to 11 x 12. Score at 2

    on all 4 sides.

    Lid: Cut Soft Suede cardstock to 9-1/8 x 8-1/8. Score at

    Trim the 4 corners off at the diagonal as shown

    Add Sticky Strip to the corners and fold it up into a box.

    Trimming the corners on the diagonal makes for smooth clean

    box corners and eliminates those nasty little edges that sit

    above the box sometimes.

    Lid piece - Cut up to the 2 intersecting score lines on 2 sides

    of the box. Fold on the score lines. Trim the front corners on

    the diagonal and cut the back corners off. Add Sticky Strip

    to the corners of the front and a long strip to the back piece

    as shown.

    Tuck in the front corners, seal and fold up the box lid.

    Insert the back piece into the box bottom, peel the Sticky

    Strip and press together. You can put it on the outside too if

    you want, we will be covering it up with DSP later.

    Now the bottom suitcase in the trio is made, the rest is

    decorating it to look like a real suitcase. I covered mine with

    cardstock and DSP, added a decorative trim strip around the

    lid, corner decorations, a ribbon handle and straps around the

    entire suitcase.

    10, score at 4-1/2, 5-1/2 & 6-1/2

    Punch four 1-1/4 circles to make the corners of the suitcase.

    Method: Fold circle in half one direction to score it, unfold

    and fold in half the other direction to score it. Start to foldthe score lines in on each other on one wedge making two pie

    shaped pieces in that area as shown in the second circle. Trim

    one of those segments out of there and use the remaining

    segment to place the adhesive. Tuck that little flap

    underneath and seal to create a three sided circle. Set aside.

    Cut three strips of Basic Black cardstock for the trim strip on

    the lid. One is 1/2 x 8-1/8 and two are 1/2 x 7. Paper

    pierce along one edge and use the Uni-Ball White Gel Pen to

    connect the dots and create the look of stitching. Set aside.

    Peel and stick magnets to the straps. This is how you will open

    and close this suitcase.

    Here is a photo of the Basic Gray magnets I used but I think

    they have new packaging now so it may not look like this.

    the bottom of the box.

    Cut two pieces of 12 x 3-1/2, score at 1/2 along both strips.

    You will end up needing about 20, but assemble the entire

    thing for now.

    on one long side and two short sides.

    Box lid: Cut 7-1/8 x 6-1/8 for the lid

    will end up needing about 20 of this also, but assemble the

    entire length.

    Box lid back piece: 8-1/8 x1-1/2. Score at 1/2 on one long

    side and two short sides.

    Punch two 1-3/4 circles out of scrap cardstock to use as a

    Do this for the top and bottom piece, front corners ONLY.

    Attach the two lengths of long cardstock for the box

    bottom/side with Sticky Strip, overlap by about 1/2. Cut

    1/2 piece out of the under piece so it isnt so bulky when

    attaching.

    Attach Sticky Strip around the box bottom piece in three

    separate strips. Lay one down in the front almost corner to

    corner. Then place one from the corner to the back of the

    box on each side. Mark the middle of the front with a pencil.

    Peel the Sticky Strip from the front edge. Fold the long

    piece on the score line as you will be attaching the 1/2 edge

    to the box. Find the mark you made for the center and line it

    up with the center of where you pieced the two pieces

    together. Carefully lay that down all along the front, lining it

    up right along the edge. Now the center is attached and you

    should have long pieces hanging off each side that are

    unattached.-It looks intimidating but it really is pretty straight forward,

    just trust me!

    -Try to keep it as straight up and down as possible with little

    to
