I was asked by a gentleman to make a keepsake box for his sisters new baby from a old cigar box he had given me. This was a challenge for me because I had to get the cigar smell out and then make it. I wound up painting the inside and outside of the box to eliminate the order. This is how it turned out:
bling, flowers, doily, butterfly ,her name and put lace around the edges.
I gave it to him today and he along with others who saw it loved it. That is what makes me happy - making something others will enjoy........ If you want more detail please leave me a note and I will try to answer your questions.
