Altered Cigar Box

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing with you an altered cigar box that I made for a swap. I had a blast making it. 

Here is the box in its original condition from the cigar shop in my area

Here I have altered some flowed and leaves with my Spectrum Noir markers and Silks Acrylic Glaze

Here is the top of the box in its finished form. The image was a gift from Simply Betty Stamps. I have colored her up with my Spectrum Noir markers

Here is a side view of the box. I did drill a knob into the box for ease of opening it. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch. On the side I did paint the red trim pieces black after removing them. I have re-adhered the trim pieces back onto the project which you can barely see in this picture. 

Here is the easel card open on stop.

I did line the inside of the box with paper to finish it off.

 Thanks for stopping by!
