Only last week, I found this jewel at the flea market. It was probably a kid’s schoolbag from the ‘70s. It is still usable even with the rusty metal clasp. It just needed some TLC and a creative soul to adopt it.
Paid RM40 for the handsome suitcase, I began imagining what to do with it on the ride home. I daresay that I carried it home on the train, just like that!
After some cleaning, I applied a neutral KIWI on all four sides to make it lustre a bit and pasted vintage Graphic 45 pattern papers the inside. To finish it off, tied two skeletal keys with a leather string to it's handle. In just 3 hours, I have a grungy bag to store my hand-made water-color cards & paintings.
