More Altered Cigar Boxes



Congratulations to the 30 artists who made the cut into the second round of the Graphic 45 design team call. Graphic 45 paper is just so inspirational, just check out my latest boxes! These two boxes were created and inspired by the "Steampunk Debutante Collection."

Beacon 3-in-1 craft glue was used to adhere paper and embellishments to each box. I used Tim Holtz feet on both, his sprocket gears on one and a curio knob of his on one also. The amber knob was in a bin at Michaels and my husband cut the shank to fit the box. The clock 3D sticker is from Jolee's boutique.



I sure hope you come back to see what I'm working on now...inspired by another Graphic 45 paper collection.

I have a box problem, I should seek help, but where would I go.... I hoard boxes for projects. Love this one. I've never put embellishments on before, it's a great addition.

I love the detail. I never thought of using a cigar box like this. Thank you! I'd love it if you would share this at Whimsy Wednesdays at www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com/2012/03/whimsy-wednesdays-2.html. We go live tomorrow night at 8 EST. I'm following.

that is amazing! you should submit it to the Just Steampunk! issue of Just cards. You can get the details on the scrap & stap arts website. I think for that issue they will take high quality photos in leu of the actual peice so you do not have to pay to ship it and you get a free copy of the mag. Please submit this!

Love this altered box! Isn't that Steampunk line the best, & you sure did it justice!

I've only alterd one cigar box and that was years ago with the 2nd line by Cosmo Cricket & flocked paper. Very basic by today's standards. LOL!
