Create Some Cute Vintage Suitcases With Shoe Box Craft
I never seem to have enough craft storage. Especially, boxes in which to hide the little things. Instead of buying something I decided to reuse what I already had at home with this shoe box craft.
One of the best things about this shoe box craft is that I could sit and do all the doodling whilst catching up with the winter Olympics.
This craft cost me virtually nothing has I had everything already and it was very quick and simple.
The boxes look really cute on my shelves and I think I will be making some more. I might even add some labels to the boxes disguised as luggage tags.

What you need to make shoe box craft storage
How to make Vintage Suicase shoe box craft
- First paint the shoe boxes white with chalk paint. You can use other white paint but I personally prefer the matt finish you get with chalk paint.
- Before doodling onto the shoe boxes. Sketch out some designs of vintage suitcase elements. Things like the locks, corners and handles. This will give you a reference guide to refer to when doodling.
- Draw the vintage suitcase doodles onto the white shoe boxes first in pencil. And then when you are happy with the design go over the pencil marks with a black sharpie.
- With this shoe box craft, I doodled on the front,back, sides and top. Don’t worry if you make a mistake with the sharpie. You can always paint over it with more white chalk paint.
I’m really please how these shoe boxes turned out and can’t wait to make some more.
The vintage suitcase shoe boxes also blend in well with the wallpaper in my dinning room. Its bit like camoflage.
