Altered Cigar Box
Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends! Here is my first attempt at altering a cigar box.....totally botched it, tore off the papers and started over! This is the end result....not the best, but it's a learning experience. Thank you to my friend Dena for giving me some tips!!!! The papers are from from K&Company, but the gorgeous Santa is from the Kaisercraft St. Nicholas collection. The poinsettia and tree line dies are Magnolia and the star is from Memory Box. I was not able to cover the edges....tried gesso and gold paint, but due to the glossy surface, it would not stick! Would love to hear from you if you have any ideas you'd like to share with me.
I lined the inside of the box with K&Company papers, as well as the sides. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Hugs!
