Hi there, I was given a few cigar boxes the other day, I never turn anything away I could up-cycle,
so this is what I ended up with.
Firstly i glued scrunched up tissue paper to the sides using PVA glue
Glued on a few chipboard circles to the sides, a wheel charm to the front, I also changed the lock for a more suitable one,
The anchor is a wooden one and around the edges I cut out a corner die from Amy Design (Vintage Vehicles)
Then I covered everything with black gesso.
Once dry I dry brushed with Finnabair patina effect paste.
I must say I really enjoyed playing with this box, and it feels good to have saved something from the rubbish and turned it into something beautiful, (well I think it is anyway).
I'm entering this in the following;
