An Altered Cigar Box

Has it really been almost two months since I last posted anything???!! What a bad blogger I am! There's really no excuse except that life gets in the way sometimes. We've been busy with the grandkids T-ball and Coach Pitch ball games, what fun that is to watch!!! And just life in general... anyway, I thought I would show the cigar box I altered for a Cricut Message Board Swap! My partner, Dalia, wanted a Paris theme and pink and black. I found this paper that was perfect!!! When I went to cover the box, the lid tore off, so I decided to make it a lift off top!! I used the left over knob I had from my art room cupboards!! I can't remember the name of the Maggie I used, maybe, Birdcage Tilda??? I colored her with my prismacolor markers and pencils as usual! On the inside I used a cut out from the paper for the "clock" face. Spools wrapped in paper are used for the feet! It really was a fun project and I hope Dalia liked it!!!!
