Great thread topic! I’ve posted these under DIY, but here are two of my projects so far.

Inspiration:

My petal runner (cost about $15 to $20 total):

 

I was inspired by photos of vintage post boxes like this:

To create my card box (made out of a regular shipping box and paper -cost about $5)

I can’t wait to see the other projects…

This is a great thread!  Im afraid my DIY project would look NOTHING like the original.

 

How big is the suitcase?

Inspiration

Actual DIY

I think that’s the only one I actually have an inspiration pic for, everything else I kind of made up as I went along depending on what materials I had.

@VictorianChick:  It’s more like a trunk hehe. Quite big, so I’m stacking some books in the corner and having some flower arrangement on top.
