Instructions: Suit case is 4” x 8” x 2” deep. Top: Cut a piece of black metallic cardstock 6” x 10” and score at 1” on all sides.  Bottom:  Cut a piece of black metallic cardstock 12” x 8” and score at 2” on all sides. Cut a slit on the score line on all of the corner squares and then small triangles on all corners. Cut those corner squares off on one of the long sides of the top. See more photos here http://www.janspaperflowers.com. Burnish the folds on the score lines and adhere the corners using Dries Clear Adhesive. Hold together with clips until the adhesive dries. When dry, adhere the flap you created by cutting off the corner squares to the back of the bottom piece creating a top that lifts up.
