Tropical Travelogue Steamer Trunk and Album

Graphic 45 has re-released an old favorite "Tropical Travelogue" in a Deluxe Collector's Edition, which includes not only the beautiful papers, but the coordinating chipboard and sticker sheet. The collection inspired me to make a vintage-style steamer trunk with a mini travel album to fit inside.

I've listed the project itself in my Etsy Shop (there's just one!) plus a tutorial as well. If you teach classes or sell kits, I also have listed a tutorial/commercial use so you can enjoy the project with your crafty friends too! When you view the details in the tutorial listing, you'll see what supplies you'll need for this project.

Here's a walk-through of the project so you can check it out...
