Decopatch - Papier Mache Suitcase

Decopatch papier Mache Suitcase
I’ll be honest …. in a way,  I prefer these suitcases naked and unadorned!
Paper mache suitcases
For this first case I’ve used Decopatch Paper No. 497 with the larger of the papier mache suitcases (measurements 4.5 x 11 x 7.5cm & 5 x 14 x 10cm) which cost between £3.00 - £4.00 depending where you buy them.  The straps were a bit of a fiddle fart … as I didn’t want to cover them only to find they would no longer fit in the fastenings!
If I can find some nice gold corners, I might experiment with them, I know it’s got a few gems but I think it could do with something else.
I’m going to put this away and use it when I need a small gift box.

This is more my style, (Plain Jane) I’ve just gone over it a couple of times with a brown Promarker.
