An Old Suitcase Made New!

I decoupaged this old thrift store suitcase for O months ago using an old, torn up children's book (our favorite book from when we were children). My mom was glad to see the very used and torn book being put to good use :) This was a fun project that is one of O's handmade birthday gifts.

I decoupaged the inside of the suitcase using scrapbook paper. Check back to see how the suitcase will be used :)

  8. How do you have time to do all of these things...the crafts and the projects with O? I can never seem to fit it all in. I would love to do more crafts but I never can find time to do them while my girls are awake, and with keeping up with the house and errands I don't feel like I do enough with the girls Montessori time either. You seem to be a real "Super Woman!" What's the secret?

  11. This is really beautiful. I'm a huge fan of using old, torn or worn children's books in projects, and this is the first time I've seen them used this way.

    I have a couple of old books put aside to use as artwork for the wall whenever we have another baby.
