Vintage Suitcase Wedding Card Holder

It's wedding madness over here!  

I'm helping my friend decorate for her rustic wedding and wanted to share what I'm working on. 
Today it's a vintage suitcase for holding wedding cards.

This old suitcase belonged to my great grandma.
It's been sitting in my home for years and it's finally getting some use!
I put some vintage linens inside and made
the CARDS burlap pennant banner with materials I had leftover from this project.

The bride is thrilled!

I don't know who came up with the idea to have guests put their cards in a suitcase...but it's genius.
The Internet is filled with so many wedding card suitcase inspirations.
I just have to share a few favorites.

I love how this suitcase is sitting on a luggage rack.
I'm thinking I need to pack one more thing to go to the church!

I love the colored ribbon on this one.
A pink ribbon might look good added to my suitcase?

I like how they stacked the suitcases and tied a bow on the handle.
I might add a bow, too.

Check out the clothesline inside this suitcase/briefcase. So cute.

And here's one on Etsy that you can buy for $120.00
Notice how the entire suitcase is lined with sheet music and burlap.

I like the burlap flowers.  I might need to try my hand at making some of those!
I've got to get to work!
