It’s no secret that I love making all kinds of whimsical gift boxes. So, when I was trying to think of something to make for Mother’s Day, the idea for this box in the form of a little suitcase came to mind. One of my Mom’s favorite things to do is travel—she even has an epic trip to Asia around the corner. So, I felt like this would be perfect for her.

Whether or not your mom is a world traveler, this vintage luggage box is undeniably cute, and a really fun craft. So, let’s get going!

Vintage Luggage Box

Learn how to assemble this lovely, vintage-inspired luggage gift box.

Materials

Instructions

  • Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces for your vintage luggage box.
    Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don't forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you're having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
  • Layer all of the decorative panels on the outside of your box.
    Layer the decorative interior panel on the framed-out side of the box, and attach the clear film piece on top.
  • Fold along the score lines. Attach the tabs to the interior of each of the adjacent sides.
    Glue the decorative rectangular piece to the bottom of the box. 
  • Fold each of the little corner pieces along the score lines. Use glue to attach them to the eight corners of the box.
    This is optional, but if you have small magnets or a bit of Velcro, you can attach them at the "clasp" points in order to make your box open and close more easily.
    Add other embellishments that you see fit. Fill your box with goodies, and your project is complete!

Notes

When assembled, this project is about 4.5" wide, 3.5" tall, and 1.5" deep.

Super simple, but absolutely adorable! And perfect for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day too.

My favorite part about doing vintage-inspired projects like this is always picking out the patterned paper I’m going to use. And even though the trinkets inside the gift cover it up, I think the map paper I found to line the inside of the box is the perfect little piece to tie in the “travel” aspect of this project.
