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.

Fold and adhere the corner flaps

Fold and adhere the  front corner flaps

Adhere the long flap onto the back of the bottom piece

Cut the Textured leather cardstock: 2 pieces 1/2” x 8” for the straps and 2 pieces 1/2” x 6 1/8” for the handle.  Adhere the 2 pieces for the handle together to form a stronger handle.  

Ink all of the edges of the designer paper with Distress Oxide Black Soot Ink and adhere to the base using Dries Clear Adhesive.  Adhere the straps and the handle as shown and embellish with the brads. Cut some of the tags from the paper collection and adhere to the suitcase.
