Altered Cigar Box

Sometimes you just have to make something, just because
 you want to, or as Benice says: Just because you can!
Cigar boxes are wonderful to work with and a excellent object to alter.
This is what I have done with mine.

Remove all the existing paper. Take the all the measurements and cut
the paper into the different sizes. I took my guide from the box itself.

Plan the cover carefully and don't glue anything down until you have a
place and a space for everything.
Move it around until you are happy with your layout.
I used:
Prima Paper
Silk ribbon
Antique lace
Distress stains
Distress paints
Glimmer mists
Embellishments from my stash

magazine. Issue 57.
