Steamer Trunk Gift Box

Finally got my crafting head on and came up with this, a steamer trunk gift box. My Dad went to Germany for a holiday, and bought back a small Stein jug to give to our friend Gillian, but it didn't have a box so my Dad asked if I'd make one. And to keep in the holiday/travelling spirit thought this was appropriate...

The "leather" work was made with Tim Holtz' Grunge paper and stained with his Vintage Photo ink pad and then hand stitched. The corners were cut from Nestabilities circle dies. The travel stickers were from Cavellini & Co. And the interior was fully lined with velvet paper. Oh and the box was made with mounting board, which was just under 2mm thick. Thank you for visiting and taking a peek.
Take care and keep smiling :o)
