It’s been a while since I’ve posted pictures on a project just because I made it (with no tutorial). Well, today you can enjoy this pretty packaging for a gift card. I made this suitcase box to hold a Costco Cash Card we gave as a wedding gift.
I found this great suitcase box from Snapdragon Snippets in the Silhouette Design Store, and it is just perfect! I only changed the colors and the tag. You can find Jodi’s assembly tutorial for this suitcase box HERE.
This project gave me a chance to play with my Silhouette CAMEO® 3 and Silhouette faux leather paper. I changed the tag to include an appropriate wedding phrase, which I sketched with a black sketch pen on linen paper, and then I colored inside a portion of the phrase with a red Tombow dual brush pen.
You may have noticed that the straps are a little short on the front of the box. I was running late for the reception and didn’t have time to re-cut the straps. I think that when wetting down and crumpling and then letting the faux leather paper dry, it may have shortened those long pieces. Next time I’ll cut them a little longer.
But look at the texture of this faux leather paper! It’s so perfect for this suitcase. I did add a little shading with a brown chalk inkpad to add to the depth and texture. Such fun details are included on this clever box design!
It’s still wedding season, so maybe if you’re giving a gift card (or cash) you’ll want to try this suitcase as a pretty packaging idea. ♥
