Magazine Page Suitcase DIY

A simple little suitcase makeover for your upcoming summer ventures. Enjoy...

Supplies: Suitcase, paintbrush, magazines, and modpodge c/o The Plaid Barn
Pantry Supplies: Scissors or exacto knife.

First, rip out magazine pages you would like to have on the front of the suitcase. Apply a layer of mod podge to the suitcase and lay the page down. Then, apply a layer of mod podge on top of the magazine page. Repeat these steps until the entire suitcase is covered in pages. Lastly, take scissors or an exacto knife (an exacto knife will provide smoother lines) and trim along the edge, making the pages fit perfectly on the top of the suitcase.
