Travel in style with this adorable paper tote filled with fun goodies featuring the brand new "I Love Travel" Collection! Inside you'll find old-fashioned board games, cute luggage tags and a mini journal for jotting down memories.
To begin I crafted this simple luggage-style tote from Doodlebug Bon-Bon cardstock. Here are the measurements for creating the 7" X 4.5" X 1.75" tote:
Cut cardstock to 12"X7". Score the 12" length at 4.5", 6" and 7.5". Fold along score lines and then corner round all four corners. Next make two tabs from the same brown cardstock that measure 2.5"X3.75". Score the strips at 1" and 2.75". Attach to the front and back of the piece to create the sides of the tote:
For the front and back I cut two strips of Ladybug cardstock to 3/4" X 4.5" and adhered them as shown:
The handles were made from a loop of the same 3/4" X 12" Ladybug cardstock. I used large brads to attach the handles.
Next I crafted a couple of "board" games that were laminated so that they could be written on with a dry-erase maker and then easily erased.
Using the sheet of 4X6 journal cards I made this quick and easy booklet:
To create the booklet I scored each journal card approximately 1/4" from the left edge. After prepping a cover from a 8.5"X 6.25" sheet of patterned paper, the cards were attached along the scored tab.
Finally I used these adorable 3X4 cards and turned them into luggage tags. The fronts were embellished with enamel shapes and sweet bows.
You can find more ideas for board games and even printables that can be printed onto patterned paper! So whether one is traveling by train, plane or automobile, this cute tote makes a great gift and keepsake!
Thank you for joining me today!
