Cigar Box






My latest project a Cigar Box I used Lindy's Chocolate Truffle on the interior and exterior. On The top I used a 6X6 paper from the Tim Holtz crowded attic collection. I matted it with a 7X7 piece of kraft cardstock. They were distressed with Vintage photo. I painted a polymer corner with the same Lindy's for a lovely look. Two Coffee filter flowers cut with the tattered flowers die and spray with Lind's Moon Shadow Mist in Tawny Turquoise. Also a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts touch along the edge with the Chocolate Truffle. Just for a little something I added a German Foil Bee flying toward the flowers.

Inside I made a collage using the Pink Paisley Butterfly Garden Stamps and Ephemera. Additionally I lined both the inside and outside bottom with felt.

I recently purchased my first vintage pictures and thought they would be good for storage as I think they should probably be kept out of the light.

Thanks Regina and Tammy...it is I just love the old photos especially of women. They don't need to be traditional beauties, but speak to me in some way. I will have to check your blog out, and thanks for letting me know about the freebies...:)
