I love altering cigar boxes.
They are easy to find at most antique shops or thrift stores.
This one measure 5 3/4 x 7 3/4.
I am also using one of my favorite lines of paper for this.
Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket. I have done several projects with this line and never get tired of it! When I was pulling out my stash for this project I pulled out these 2 lovely women from a sewing pattern. They were so cute and matched the paper so well, that I decided to use them for the front.
Another fun product I used is film strip ribbon.
It's by Tim Holtz and it is awesome! I highly recommend it!
You glue your paper to the film strip and then bend and shape your ribbon as you attach it to your projects.
I love seeing how many layers
I can add without taking away from the general look and feel of it!
I also enjoy covering the inside too!
Perfect size box for holding vintage greeting cards!
Wishing you all a lovely day, Lindsey
