electronid die cutting machine, software
Inks (ClearSnap, VersaMark)
Chibitronics LED and copper tape
embellishments as desired
Scoring tool and board
I created a cutting file for my 3D suitcase using basic shapes. If you don't have an electronic machine, consider using the Eileen Hull (by Sizzix) die found here. Cut the file using heavy cardstock and a second set made with your choice of liner paper.
Emboss the front of the suitcase as desired using the embossing folder and the Cut-n-Boss using the sandwich as described by the manufacturer. I chose to emboss only a portion of the front and add a couple of scoring lines just to the right of the embossing as shown in the photo below.
Heat set the color. Design and cut your stencil. Apply the vinyl to the front and get your eBrush and markers and spray as shown in the photo below.
Heat set again if needed. ( I forgot to heat set and some of my smooched ink came off with the vinyl stencil. :( Turn the piece over and apply the liner piece.
here. I chose to add a pull lever, so the light will turn on when the gift is opened. I chose to use a Teresa Collins stamp from ClearSnap to add some pizzaz to the liner and as a focal point.
Attach the front to the back with the tab. Carefully, glue the liner in place. Make sure there's a space for the "latch" and the pull.
