I was truly honored when Jadedstudios asked me to help out with an Angel package for a sister in a special group that I am in. This was definitely something that was out of my element. I had to think outside the box for this one. I was the lucky angel for an amazing sister Allyson in our group. Here are a few pictures of the altered cigar box that I made for her.
This is the top of the box that I painted and covered with pattern paper. I used some Websters flower trim across the bottom of the lid, some Prima trim along the sides and double lace across the top. I cut out the bird and bird cage from the TH die. I painted them both, sponging glitter paint to the cage and distress ink to the bird. Being as we are in a group called the Secret Squirrel Sisterhood Society, I found it quite fitting to use a sticker embellishment with the word "sisters". I used some Zva flourish bling, Wild Orchid Crafts gardenia that I misted, some yellow cherry blossoms also from WOC along with some orange and two tone orange flowers from Karlas001's etsy store. I really love how it turned out. The theme was either halloween or fall and since I don't celebrate halloween I opted for the fall theme.
This is the unfinished inside of the box. I later on finished it off with a pocket along the bottom of the lid and added a peacock feather inside the pocket. I painted the outside and inside of the box using brown, cream and gold paint. I love how it has that homey feel to it. I had so much fun decorating this box.
Here is a video of Allyson opening up her box full of goodies:
Enjoy and until next time!
