Step by Step Instructions:
1. Prepare trunk top cover piece and inside piece- using “Via Paris Air France” and “Wanderlust” cut apart pieces, dampen each piece lightly. Crinkle, then gently uncrinkle. Lightly tear and distress. Allow to dry.

2. Create ATC box trunk- Lay Come Away With Me paper on top of box. Fold paper around box. Score paper along the folds of the box. Adhere paper onto box. Distress edges with ink.

3. Adhere Wanderlust to the inside of box.

4. Adhere Cosmopolitan strips to sides of box. Center and wrap 1 strip around box, cut the second strip to cover the gap.
Attach Ornate Metal Keyhole with 2 small brads.

Follow the same steps above to cover the inside (using the reverse side pattern). Adhere “Come Away with Me” cut out inside the bottom of box.

5. Adhere trunk “straps” to box- using the Pleasure Trip strips, cut a piece from each strip for the front of box (approx. 2 1/4” pieces), adhere into place. Use the rest of the length of strips on the top of box. Line up with the 2 previously adhered pieces and wrap around box, adhere into place.

6. Decorate sides of trunk with travel stamps, destination words, chipboard and fussy cut labels.

7. Tie jute through the holes in the quote chipboard piece. Adhere to the back spine of trunk/box.
