A Curtain Call Cigar Box

If you have been following my blog, you would know, that recycling cigar boxes  using Graphic 45 paper is a favorite hobby of mine.


This week I finally finished the inside of a box, which I had started a while back. The box is covered inside and out with the Graphic 45, "Curtain Call," paper collection.



The tricky part was putting the jazzy dancers on a stage inside the box. The dancers were cut from cardstock and layered using my Cricut "Art Deco" cartridge. The smallest you can make the figures is at the 5" mark. The stage is made from real wood scrapbook paper. My husband helped me to figure it all out. Without his help my vision of how I wanted it, as a pop up box, would never have happened. His birthday was yesterday. He supports me in everything I do!


Happy Birthday, Sandy!
