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.
