Turn a shoe box into vintage suitcase

Hello Dear crafters,

Its been a long time again. I dont know what is keeping me so busy ;). I had a fantastic and refreshing vacation this month to Goa, India. Amazing lively place with lot of young crowd.And it was girls only trip so had a blast!

I have turned this shoes box into a vintage suitcase and I use this suitcase as a memory box to store all my letters to my kid and husband. I am typically old fashioned who likes to write down letters to my loved ones. It feels amazing the way it creates memories. My kid will always have the written proof of how obedient she was while growing up.
I have used a scrapebook paper which I bought from amazon at unbelievably cheap price.And then by using vintage ink pad I have given that 'oh so beautiful' vintage look!
I have painted the brads golden using spray to give it vintage look as black was looking rather so dull.
I request my daughter to give her waiste belt and stuck them on the top with help of silicon glue and brads.

I have made two pockets inside. One on the inner side of the suitcase lid and one as side pocket. I had total fun while making this. loved the use of paper and ink and  finishing. My friend who lent me her shoe box could not recognize that it was her box that I had turned into such a beautiful vintage suitcase.
