French Country Altered Box

Friday, January 3, 2014

Hello Bloggers,

I am sharing another altered cigar box.  I made this box for my sister for Christmas.  She has a collection of rosters and when I saw this paper from Graphic 45, I knew I was going to make her a box.  When she opened her gift, she was excited and was in love with the box!  Here are several pictures of it.  The paper is French Country by Graphic 45.  I used a lot of the paper to embellish the box.  The feet and the knob are Tim Holtz. 

Thanks again for stopping by.  If you like this project please leave a comment, I love to read them.  If you like my blog, please join my sight on the right.
