Sew Cute!


Since the dawn of Cosmo Cricket time, we have been making altered cigar boxes. This one here is a variation of one we displayed at our very first show, CHAS 06. I changed it a little so that the emphasis is more on storing scrapbooking embellishments rather than on sewing. I filled it with buttons, ribbons, thread and fabric because that's what I have on hand. Any embellishments would be cute. Think flowers, decorative brads, matching glitters, a cute block stampe, etc. I plan to go get some of the pretty, decorative pins that Leah Killian used on her card in a previous post. I think this box paired with some Jitterbug paper will be a fabulous gift, especially for a friend that has tons of paper, but never gets anything to go with it!

I have a second sewing box that is made with a Blackboard cigar box and our Honey Pie line, but I left it at the office. Eric will bring it home and then I'll photograph it so you can see it too.

Where did you get these cigar boxes? Or did you just make them up. These boxes are a really cute idea.
