Rustic Altered Cigar Boxes

My sweet Daddy gave me this Cigar Box knowing I'd want to make something pretty with it.
It made a beautiful craft supplies box and so at his next stop at the Cigar Store he picked me up a few more cigar boxes. In most cigar stores you can walk in and ask to buy empty boxes. The one by our house sold them for only $1 each!! I know! how cool is that! add that to your To Do list today.
Here are the pretty boxes that came from that trip to the store...

If you try this idea, I'd love to see how it turns out! please stop by and show me!!

Hi Angela - LOVE your cigar box art!! :) I TOO love to alter cigar boxes!

In 2007 a couple of my collaged cigar boxes made it into the Stampington Gallery magazine. They were chosen at a juried art show. I have since sold one but held onto the other one "just because" :) You can see them here:
