Altered Cigar Box
This is a wooden cigar box I altered for a gift.
Here is a view of the top
This is the yummy papers I used-this is the bottom.
This is a view of the inside that I milk washed
Another view of the dimension on the top
I used some really fun Tattered Angels chipboard pieces that I inked.
I had an aged doily that just seemed to work for this box.
More Tattered Angels pieces, some Pizzazz Aplenty stick pins and pearls.
Flowers are a mixture of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.
Let me know what you think or any questions.
So glad I could share with you.
***Seen a question on this post about "What is milk washing?"
I use a white paint-(any brand - cheap one works) just add a little water at a time. I usually use a piece of clear packaging from something I have purchased and would throw away anyways. This is my palette to mix on when I need more for my project.
I just use this mixture to paint with-it creates almost a translucent wash of white,depending on how much water you used.***
