Vintage Vanity Case for Your Inner Diva!

Does anyone else remember when all luggage was hard-sided, and you (or your mom) packed all of your make-up and personal items in one of these:

Well, armed with Vintage Ephemera Sets from Gecko Gals and my arsenal of Helmar Adhesives, my vanity case now looks like this:
And what will be stored in my new Diva Case you ask? Well of course.........
Actually, I will store all of my make-up and brushes in this case and keep it on my vanity table!
On this project, I used Helmar Decopauge Medium, Acrylic Sealer, 450 Quick Dry (all trims) Fray Stoppa (on ends of satin ribbon wrapped around handle) and Liquid Scrap Dots (for rhinestones on latch).
Thanks for stopping by today!
Shelly
