Vintage Altered Cigar Styled Box

Vintage styled altered crafts are so incredibly fun to make that I had to share one with you.  I am participating in an altered cigar style box swap.  I must admit that I had so much fun with this one that I plan to make more in the future.


I had some paper from the ancestry.com line by K&Company that was perfect for a vintage style box.  There are a few 3 Girl JAM ribbons that coordinate perfectly with these papers.  I decided to use Coral Crush from the Caribbean Splash bundle and Cream from the Coffee bundle to accent these great papers.


Of course there were a LOT of other supplies that I needed:
8X8 wooden box
Paint - Napa Red paint and Weathered Wood crackle medium by American and Warm White from Folk Art
J.W.'s Right Step clear varnish
Adhesives - Gorilla glue, hot glue, Glossy Accents
Spools from Laura's Crafts
K and Company metal art embellishements
Recollections leaves, clear plastic paper, wooded butterfly
Lace (from my stash)
Tiny mirror from Joann's
Creative Inspirations Paint - Tutu Pink and Coal
Prima - Say it in Crystals, Say it in peals and butterfly with flower


For the second part of the swap, I needed to fill the box.


 I really hope you enjoy the video.


Did you know that there is an "Anything Goes with Ribbon" challenge over on the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog?   There are some fun prizes so be sure to link up your project below.

Have a great day and remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
