This month's sponsor is ClearSnap! I love the ColorBox inks and the Glam Green and Gold inks were perfect for this project.
Let's get started with this 3D paper suitcase.
Electronic Die Cutting Machine, software
Cut - n - Boss
Chibitronics LED and copper tape
Ink (ClearSnap, VersaMark)
embellishments as desired
Stamp (world, by Teresa Collins)
Scoring tool and board
I created a cutting file for my 3D suitcase using basic shapes. If you don't have an electronic machine, consider using the Eileen Hull die found here. Cut the file using the heavy cardstock. Cut another copy made with liner paper.
Emboss the front as desired using the embossing folder and the Cut-n-boss using the standard sandwich as described by the manufacturer. I chose to emboss a portion, not the whole front. I then added two score lines by using my scoring tool and scoring board.
Ink the craft release paper (freezer paper works too). Spritz lightly with water. Use the eBrush and disperse the ink as desired. Smooch the embossed piece into the ink. Set aside and let dry. Heat set the ink.
Create a circuit using the Chibi LED and copper tape as shown here. I chose to add a pull tab to open the circuit once the gift was delivered.
Line up the circuit with the stamped liner. Secure the circuit in the base of the suitcase. Stamp the liner as desired. Glue the side pieces together. Put the base of the case together.
Glue the tab on the front of the case to the base. Add the liner. Make sure that the lever on the battery pocket can be accessed. Close the case.
Embellish the front of the case if desired. Add the handles.
Thanks for dropping by. Hoping you have some creative time planned into your schedule this week! Join the rest of the team this week and next for more projects using ClearSnap and the eBrush!
