Boxes & Boxes & More Altered Boxes

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I know this is my third post of the day. Please forgive me. This is the first time in a while that I have felt like posting and had the time all at once. I believe I mentioned this is a recent post--that is I have been crafting. I just haven't an opportunity to take descent photos to share with you. There are times when I am on a role and all I want to do is simply create. Well, that's the type of roll I have been on over the last couple of weeks. I suppose now is the time I would like to share what I created with  you. Lately, I've had this desire to alter as many cigar boxes as I can and over the last two weeks, I have managed to alter nine boxes. So today, I wanted to show you one of the nine. Take a look...

 This is one of my favorite designer papers, Leon Flower Stack by DCWV.
 I suppose since it is one of my favorite papers,
 I choose note to use a lot of embellishments.
 The only embellishments I used was a little bling,
Tim Holtz's foundation and I kept the original cigar banding.
I lined the boxes with more of the coordinating papers.
This altered box is very shallow. My initial thoughts were to
use this box to store elegant paper napkins in.
However, someone else my find another use for it.
I hope you like what you've seen and perhaps it may have inspired you to create and altered box of your own or just create for that matter. As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon--like tomorrow to see another version of box altered by me.
