You’re so kind to pop back for this third and finale post on refurbishing Vintage Luggage. Thank’s a BA-zillion (that’s a whole heap of thank’s) for all your generous messages too. Tweetie and I really loved reading them all.
If you missed the first two posts and would like to catch up, you can follow the links at the bottom of this post 😀
After painting and re-lining this very special Vintage Train Case, one dilemma remained. How should I hide the holes that once held the missing luggage emblem on the front? Tweetie and I brainstormed a wee while and this is what transpired:
Filled in the holes with craft glue
I actually took a photo of the floral material and using Photoshop designed a crest with Alys’s name on it. If you don’t have Photoshop, I would be happy to help you with this step (this font is Coca-Cola).
Once the crests where printed, I chose to use my Big Shot and a shapely die to cut them out. Don’t worry if you don’t have these tools. Most scrapbook stores have an extensive collection you can use for a small fee.
I actually designed a couple of choices, then printed several of the one I thought worked the best.
This printable canvas has a film you peel off to reveal a very sticky back. Simply place as desired on your projects.
I also used the same labels to personalize Alys’s new matching tote and make-up bags that were fashioned out of the remaining material. I’ll tell you all about making them in a future post. Break out the sewing machine, they’re pretty addictive and so (sew) easy 😀
