Inspire Altered Cigar Box




The feet are SU stamp blocks.
Painted to match the box.






I guess the Altered Cigar Box started at a LSS called
The Queen's Ink.  A couple of our stamp group members
joined in for one of their classes and brought the idea
back to the group!  lol

This is one I made today.  It was very quick and easy.
Kinda cool that you can take something that would otherwise
end up in a landfill and make something beautiful out of it.

This one will hold my sketch book I made a couple years ago.
Found the matching paper in my hoard of DSP...


Hope you all are having a wonderful week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cool! So that is a solid wood box? Did you paint the border or is that already part of the box?
