Altered Cigar box

Hello dears,

today I’d like to show you a cigar box I pimped up. I received the unfinished box from my friend Chrissy for my birthday so I can alter it and finally I had the perfect sized gift for the box to host. I will show you the gift in next posting.

For now, lets have a look at the box
cigarbox_1I saved myself the sewing on the papers to save some time but I did heat emboss with white shabby chic Frantage becaaausse my friend Tammi loves it a lot Smile yes I do read her blog lol
The supplies came all from stash
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with rose, post mark stampset, letter, Lili of the Valley
Dies: Magnolia Doo Hickey Vintage Pfau, Lala land for the foliage swirl, Spellbinders oval
Paper: Magnolia Ink Riffard Roses, Once upon a time
Embellishments: Tim Holtz alteration hardware, flowers, distressing tool, “gem twing” came in a DT kit sent by Magnolia, flowers, pearl brad came from my friend Kristine in Norway yeeears ago

Oh, I just see that the lovely Louise is teaching a class at Sir Stampalot. You don’t want to miss this. Louise is so talented and such a wonderful girl to meet! This is going to be so much fun! call or email Janice or Andy to reserve your spot

As always, Claudia this is just gorgeous! What is the frantage- it appears to be a course glass glitter maybe?
