Candy Box Crafts - MDF Suitcase

This is one one of Candy Box Crafts newer products. 

There are only 5 pieces to assemble, but it builds into a very reasonably sized piece, ideal for keeping all those scrappy bits of paper that we all  have lying about the place. 

With Christmas fast approaching its another ideal gift that can be decorated in so many ways.

I have decorated this one in Graphic 45's "Come Away With Me" collection with the addition of a secret ingredient  -  shoe polish.

I gave the 'frames' which surround the suitcases a couple of coats of brown shoe polish . The first coat soaks in pretty well, so after buffing it up I  gave it another coat, a very simple and very effective way of giving that aged leather look.

Hope you like it!


  1. Hi Deborah they are gorgeous I love the way you have decorated them. I think they would be useful for storing many things around the house and they would make wonderful presents. Hugs Jackie
