No matter what part of the country you visit, Paper House Production’s
New Discover USA collection has you covered. I used this new collection along with
Eileen Hull’s adorable suitcase die from Sizzix, for a cute little make and take project
in the Paper House Productions booth at Creativation.
It’s a fun project that could be used with Vacation Memorabilia or even as a going away present for someone getting ready to retire and travel the good ole’ USA.

Cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of P-2123 “woodgrain” scrapbook paper.
Run the paper woodgrain side up through the Xyron Creative Station using permanent adhesive.
Adhere paper onto the mat board.
Die-cut covered mat board using the suitcase die and Big Shot Machine.
Fold each piece along score lines.
The larger of the four pieces is the suitcase body. Using extreme double sided tape, adhere and secure the four corner pieces.
The next largest piece is the lid. Apply extreme double sided tape to the flap. Place the lid over the opening of the suitcase body and slide into position. Adhere the flap.
Attach the closure flap at the top of the lid using extreme tape. Leave approximately twice the thickness of the mat board used between the hinge of the flap and the top edge of the lid. The lightly folded tab will press against the inside of the suitcase to keep it closed.
Cut a piece of brown cardstock 3 3/4″ x 11″. Using a score board and the scoring tool, score the cardstock lengthwise 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″. Fold along score lines to create a mini accordion book.
Choose one of the Discover USA tag 12″ double sided scrapbook paper. Cut tags just slightly smaller than 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
