Text!!! #43 street team

Revisiting old project/decoupaged suitcase.
Words, words words!
I needed a place to store my catalogs. You may remember in the 90's, catalogs were coming fast and furious ....sometimes 8-10 a day!!!! the new way to shop!


I thought this would be a fun example of using words, even though it is not a journal page.


$2.50 thrift store suitcase to hold catalogs.

Peggy - fun interpretation of using text! Clever girl - covering your old/new storage case with titles of catalogs harboured within. I predict you will inspire a host of people looking for suitcases at yardsales :) Thanks for sharing with the team!

Seriously cool to use an old suitcase for storage and of course to decorate it. You are 'stylin'!!

I love this. It is really awesome and what a great tongue in cheek way to store your magazines. I've never even heard of this challenge before. How cool is that?

Awesome! I think your bargain suitcase turned out very swish. Enjoy filling it up with beautiful catalogues.

You really managed to get a fun and useful item out of this crusade! I love the altered suitcase for catalogs. Super cool idea.

Great idea. I actually signed up for some more catalogs a year or so ago because I wanted more 'themed' papers. The suitcase is a wonderful storage idea and looks as if it works fine - especially decorated!
