Couture Style

Hi everyone, hope the goblins didn't eat anyone out of house and home (smiles).

I have gotten into altering things.  This includes boxes of all shapes, sizes and purpose.  Everywhere I look I can find things that need to be altered or given a face-lift as I like to call it.

I have acquired quite a collection and I continue to put things to the side for a rainy day.  Well it finally did rain a bit this week so I decided to work on one of my projects which happen to be another cigar box.

This one was unique in that it was already black.  I got from our local smoke shop for $3.  Perfect condition without the wood or cigar smell you sometimes find with these boxes.  What a treasure find this was for me and I think after its face-lift is complete it will be the perfect treasure or trinket box for someone else.


This is how a black cigar box starts out once the cigars are removed and placed in a humidor. 

Here is how it appears after getting a face-lift courtesy
of Graphic 45 Couture Collection and a whole lot of 
love and attention.

Both sides are wrapped with velvet ribbon and centered with a metal medallion for no other reason than it was cute.

A front shot of the inside that was once a tannish brown almost raw wood.

Lastly I thought I would give a quick view of the before and after together.
