This is a cigar box frame.  I backed it with paper and used all different sticker, rub ons, and trinkets.  Its all about daddy.
Cigar storage.  Each one is liquid nailed together.  They all open individually. I put felt or flocking inside the bottom.  Ive added little feet to some.

Cigar boxes are a great way to get creative and cheap.  Enjoy and let's see your ideas!

Beautiful project!

I really like this feature as it enables me to see all the fabulous things some of my favorite posters have created.
Have fun!!

I too love the cigar boxes that are out there. I only have a couple, but am currently using them for storage for jewelry design.
I love to do altered art and plan to one day make use of them like you have done, but for now I need them for storage.
Thanks for the inspiration though. What you've done is a great tribute to the Dad in the photo.
