How To Video Tutorial: Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Steamer Trunk

Hi everyone!  Barbara here today on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog, and I have the cutest piece to share with you today.  It is the 8" Steamer Trunk, and just think of all the possible uses for this sweet piece.  I was thinking it could be used on your desk for small office supplies, or a jewelry box to keep some of your precious "jewels".  How about using it on your craft desk to keep some of your small embellishments, buttons, ink refills, glue sticks, etc.  Just change up the paper design to suit your style.
