A cigar box altered with G45 Couture.

First a thank you to my good friend, Jen aka jrabs for giving me this fabulous wooden cigar box.  The moment I saw it I knew it would be altered with something from Graphic 45!!  Well when Couture came out, I literally swooned, it was the perfect collection to use for altering my box!

The box itself is so pretty that I did not want to entirely cover it with paper so I used the black wood as framing for my papers.  The wood is a bit rough so I sealed it with mod podge to prevent those painful wood splinters!

I used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology knob for the lid, Petaloo flowers, and some metal flowers that I had.  In the upper right corner is a Leaky Shed chippy embossed with Stampendous aged black embossing enamel.  It's perfect for this box!

I dabbed Stampendous aged silver embossing enamel on the metal flower and heat set, then topped with rhinestones.

Leaky Shed 4" Julie Nuttig doll Spooky.  Her dress is done with Stampendous marcasite embossing powder.  I love the sparkly effect it gives.

I placed the Webster's cameo on a frame and filled in the size difference with Stampendous glass glitter.  


Thanks for stopping by!
