This is the cover of the wooden cigar box I made. To open the box you will pull a huge vintage pearl. I put the definition of fruitful on the front from a vintage dictionary. The vintage photo is colored with watercolor pencils...by me, and her head is decorated with a vintage broach. Above her it says "Beauty". I also added an embossed metal corner cap, and some silk flowers with mini pearls in the center of them..........
A closer look at the outside cover of the box.
This is the inside of the cigar box. I used paper that had all different vintage post cards on it. A face that I painted and used gel pens. The painted charm says "Create" and has wire with beads at the top.
Here are all the goodies I will be putting in the box. There are seven vintage photos, two vintage music sheets, one sheet of Kim Hodges words and sayings embossed stickers ( I love her stuff some of the stickers say...."love is all around, all is well in my world, I love you so, happiness, keep life sweet" and many more wonderful sayings) two clear crystal charms, one pink and one clear crystal heart charm, one large and one small circle mirror charm, two chipboard frames, seven chipboard sayings all different, a painted wooden butterfly, three clay faces I made, a round purple charm that says "play", a clock embellishment, two vintage keys, nine 3-D tag stickers with sayings on them, two brass ribbon holders, a metal daffodil charm with green crystals on the back of the charm, one meal stamped charm that says "friendship", a vintage metal screwdriver, one mother of pearl heart charm, ribbons, trim and a large hand painted enamel pink flower pin with pink stones in the middle.
I do hope that you like the box and all the goodies. Since this is my first time doing a giveaway, I have to admit I am having a little bit of a confidence issue! I guess I have to face my fear and insecurities sooner or later right!?!?!
