I just got done altering my first cigar box ala secret squirrel sisterhood style! If you haven't heard of them check out their cigar box swaps on YouTube. They are truly talented ladies.
My brother went to some cigar shops and brought me as many boxes as they would allow when he was visiting a few weeks ago. I took one of the plainer ones and I crackle painted the entire box (which took the most time of anything). Then I added patterned paper from KaiserCraft's Pickled Pear 6 1/2" paper pad collection after that I added various elements from the paper collection that were fussy cut, from my stash, as well as beautiful mulberry flowers from iamroses.com.
Hope you enjoy this project of mine. Have a fabulous day!
