Cigar Box Anyone?

It's still steampunk theme for Miriam's Crafting Supplies so for my second project this month I chose to make an altered cigar box for my cousin. He smokes cigars and gave me a bunch of boxes so I felt the best way to thank him for those was to make him an altered one for his humidor room. I used a traveling theme with a train, hot air balloon, clocks, springs, gear key, typewriter keys, chipboard gears, chains, a mini bottle and some resined chip board quotes. The paper was DCWV. I also used a Tim Holtz Stencil and some DecoArt Terracotta paste. I'm in love with the clawed feet from Miriam's store. I think they really added to the piece.

I had a ball making this. I always do when I'm working steampunk! I hope you enjoy peeking at it!

and the Inside Top

I left the inside of the box plain wood.I wanted it to be rough and manly. I plan to put a bottle opener and a new cigar cutter in there for him. I'm hoping that he will love displaying it in his "special cigar room".

Thanks for stopping by again and as always...

Love ya!
