Good Evening Bloggers!! Hope your week is going well! Okay, I know you all are saying this woman is obsessed with altering cigar boxes. I think you are right! I discovered that I am enjoying altering boxes almost as much as I enjoy sewing and embroidery.
This type of crafting relaxes me after a hard day at work.
Anyway I thought I would share with you yet another box. Please don't throw tomatoes at me, for the same show different day. LOL.
DISCLAIMER: PLEASE IGNORE THE FACT I FORGOT TO CLEAN OFF THE GLUE STRINGS BEFORE I PHOTOGRAPHED THE BOX. LORDY IF I HAD A BRAIN I WOULD BE DANGEROUS!!
The paint I used on this box is called Linen by Folk Art. I painted the entire box before I added any other decorations. I had a thin wooden heart I bought at a yard sale and I MODGED PODGED the paper I bought at AC Moore to the heart. The paper was a crisp white, so I decided to delicately swipe my paint brush across the paper to give it an aged effect!.
The rose came from a Christmas gift, so I re purposed it as a accent to this box. The butterfly came from Michael's I bought it several weeks ago. The ribbon I had in my ribbon stash. I bought the little shiny leaves at AC Moore on clearance for a 1.00. I have several left over for future projects!
This is the inside top of the box! I had some butterflies left over from my Michaels trip I made a few weeks back!! I am really trying to use up from stash of things I have on hand vs buying any thing new. I did buy the paint I used on this box and the paper was on sale at AC Moore. I paid I think about 85 cents each for two sheets. But the rest of decorations I had on hand.
This is the bottom inside of the box! I continued the brassy button effect in each corner here to continue the effect.
