Cigar Box Secrets
Becky here with you today to share with you a box that I altered and also a card to go with it. I used the new Prima Cigar Box Secrets Collection and I love the way they turned out!
Let me first tell you about the box that I altered. I used the paper, of course, that I distressed and inked with some of the Powder Puffs in Amaretto and Bloody Mary along with some pieces from the Cigar Box Secrets Ephemera pack and some UmWowStudio chippies.
Here is some close-ups of the box…
I also used some of the flowers from the collection and a few of my own. The laces are also from my stash and the little metal handle as well. Here is a picture of the side….
I put little buttons as feet to raise the box up a bit. I love the colors in the paper because I am doing a Christmas swap but the things that are going inside it are not all Christmas themed so I thought this paper would be perfect because it still has the Christmas colors.
Now let me tell you about the card I made to go with it….
I tried to follow the same theme and make it to match the box. The only thing I did is used the black pattern paper with the aqua paper on top with the pretty flower pattern. I used the same lace and trims as the box. I included the flowers again as well as another chippie 🙂 There is also another Prima flower in there you can get from the store that are made of lace and oh so pretty and delicate! 🙂 There is also some more ephemera and banners that I made out the paper as well.
I hope you like it! Here is also a video that is over on my YouTube channel with all the details:
