We both participated in Karen's Fall Findings Cigar Box Swap. We were to altered a cigar box and personalize it as close as possible to our Sister.
I love cigar boxes but can't bear to cover up its unique art. So I bought a plain wooden cigar box at Michael's and decoupaged it using fall designer paper. I used fall theme embellishments to decorate the lid, and made the paper flower using my border edge punch. Ann is from Kansas, so I thought that the flower would hopefully pass by as a sunflower...
I covered the inside and outside of the box. I noticed that Ann likes vintage ephemera and went to Cora's Clearly Vintage and searched for some great pictures.
I filled the inside with fall goodies and supplies for Ann to make tags. She creates great tags.
