The crate is filled with these amazing vintage camera themed file folders. They are the perfect place to document your photos and a great way to organize the photos from the trip with style.
You can leave them as they are or decorate each one to coordinate with the Bon Voyage theme of the crate. Watercolor the folders red with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – simply pour into a cup and apply with a brush to get the look.
Dining out is such a big part of travel – make a pocket for the crate for favorite restaurants! Add business cards, menus or photos of the food.
Create this mixed media canvas for the back of the crate by turning it backwards and creating your own mixed media shadowbox. You can watercolor the printed canvas with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to create the red airplane or leave the pieces as they are.
You can fill the crate with postcards, envelopes, cards and other fun pockets to hold knickknacks from the trip. Send blank ones and even provide some stamps so they are ready to send as soon as they are filled out.
Using the same techniques and products, you can create handmade invitations for the party.
Make all the invites the same or shake things up a bit.
You can mix the vintage feel of the 7gypsies American Gypsy Postcards with the classic design of the Canvas Corp Postcards and decorate them all with the variety of items found in the Voyages Mix and Match Pad. Stamp or jot down Your Invited and fill in all the details.
You can even create your invites on all canvas postcards or canvas & burlap postcards by Canvas Corp and mail them to your guests, yes they can be mailed, just glue or stitch the stamp in place.
Simple decorations for the party are so easy when you have pretty papers that all work so well together. Create this banner for the mantel, entry door or even across the buffet table.
Decorate with old suitcases, look for them at garage sales and flea markets, no worries if they are not in perfect working order.
Give the gift of the crate to those going away and challenge them to bring back lots of memories to fill it up. Then you need an after the trip party to look at the photos. There is always a good excuse for a party.
