A 'Quest' Suitcase with Mini Album

Today's project is a travel themed one composed of a mini suitcase housing a couple of envelopes & a simple mini album.  I think this project came out really cute & provides a unique way of documenting a vacation or small getaway.  

Project was made with the travel themed collection 'Quest'. 

Suitcase was made with the Sizzix XL Bag, Suitcase die. I used medium weight chipboard to cut the suitcase.  The finished suitcase measures approximately 4 1/4" x 3 3/4" inches & is about 1" inch deep.  This suitcase is a perfect size for storing wallet sized photos.  With kraft card stock I created 'straps' for the suitcase & from the handle I hung a chain with an airplane charm.

For the inside, I created a very simple fold out pocket mini album that can store wallet sized photos measuring up to 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" inches.  You can also just use the suitcase itself as a mini album & just print several photos to store within the suitcase.

The small mini measures 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" inches & has several pocket pages for storing photos.  It's held closed with a belly band created from kraft card stock.

As you can see you can store the photos inside the pockets & if desired, you can also adhere photos to the backside of the mini.

In addition to the mini, I also included 2 small envelopes created with papers from the 'Quest' collection that can also be used for storing additional photos, journaling or small mementos.  

Below is a brief video showcasing the project.  Enjoy!
