Hi, everyone. My name is Kelsey and We are back at you with another thrift flip.
Yeah we are! Today our thrift flip is inspired by our sponsor Which is dairy farmers of Canada! So Canadian cheese is super creative, just like us, and it’s an expression of the individual cheese makers, and it’s just as diverse as Canada is. It’s made with a blend of Old-world tradition and new technology, and it’s internationally renowned for being super high quality. That’s why it makes it the perfect mix for today’s project because we’re using old things to make something new and awesome. And we’re internationally renowned for being high quality, right? Haha. So in today’s project We’re going to make a super awesome picnic basket to take with you to the park and we’re going to find something from the thrift store that we can upcycle to make this happen. Let’s do it! So..
Anything you can uh make into a picnic basket. I mean, basket? It’s not really portable, though.
Oh, okay Dig through this to find something. The selection is looking bleak. That’s not bad. It’s kinda in rough shape, but like.
Maybe? Under here that might be something Wait, wait, wait! What about that one, yeah! Look what we found! This old school suitcase is super cool, like I haven’t seen anyone use one of these in years. I love the color and it’s going to be an amazing upcycle.

Yes! So we actually went and picked up other stuff from the fabric store and like the dollar store And I think we have everything we needed to transform this guy. Alright. Let’s see what we can make with it. Alright! So there’s lots of things that we want to include in our picnic basket kit suitcase. That includes Canadian wine, a blanket, some plates, some cups, our knives and cutlery. I think the first thing to do is to know what you want to put in your picnic basket And I know that we want to re-line this whole thing, because it’s not looking cute. Alright, so I think I’m going to cut out this big pocket as well as these straps– anything we don’t want in and then just begin to fabric glue in my new fabric.
Oh! It looks so good and bright in here. I love this pattern. Now, we’re going to rough in where our picnic essentials are going to go. We’re gonna have some wine in here I think our blanket might go something like this, and then of course we’re going to have our containers of food. So those can go in here
Plates Cheese knives, and the wine glasses. I think these are going to fit really nicely up here in the corners. So to hold these all in we’re going to need some straps. So we have our collection of small brown belts here And we’re just going to use these various belts to strap things in.
Alright, this is how it looks with all of the straps. I’m really excited to pack this all up and see how it looks. This looks amazing. I’m so excited to get picnicking, but somebody has to make some food And I’m giving that job to Becky.
Would you mind filling these up for me, Becky? Thanks! For our first picnic dish, I’m making a marinated Canadian bocconchini and tomato mushroom salad dish. Next, I’m making a garden tomato and feta spaghetti. Lastly, I’m making a gouda asparagus pesto. Canadian cheese is delicious in its own right and distinct from European options. Which is why we love cooking with it! Make sure to check the link in the description for all the recipes to these amazing dishes made with Canadian cheese. Hope you guys liked that post. I’m so happy with how we upcycled this suitcase to a picnic kit! It turned out amazing.
I’m super stoked to use it for all my picnics for the rest of the summer. The food was so good, the setup was so cute. I understand, like, the blogger picture-taking game now, because I was like, Work, little foods! You look so great! Thank you again so much the dairy farmers of Canada for inspiring us to do this and trying out the cheese at our picnic. It was so good! Thanks again. And if you guys like this post make sure you give it a like, and if you love it make sure you sub it. And we’ll see you next time. Bye!.
