This is one of my all time favorite projects. You'll need a suitcase, paint, paper, glue and a ton of memories! Here the link for the complete tutorial Keepsake Suitcase. If you're looking to find a creative way to use a suitcase or to just treasure your child, this is the perfect labor of love.
I refurbished this old suitcase for free into a keepsake suitcase that I can give my daughter when she walks out that door for college.
