Vintage Cigar Box

My sisters and I went to "Absolutely Everything" in Topsfield, Mass about 6 weeks ago and all of us bought a cigar box to decorate.  Just finally getting around to decorate mine.  With the help of Tim Holtz great hardware and feet, I put the finishing touches on yesterday.  I am pretty happy with the way it came out.  It has a Victoria/vintage feel. The corner frames, key and clock face are from the Recollection line at Michael's.  The flowers are prima flowers  The paper is Graphic 45.  Check out below for more pictures inside and out!

Tim Holtz's rosetta die is amazing!  Love it with the pearl brad!

Love this knob!

The lace is from a favorite store in Bath, Maine called Tate's. It is really prettier in person than in the picture.  The butterflies on the front are from K & Company which I have had for a while. I thought the colors were pretty and would make the front "pop" a little.  Love, love, love Tim Holtz's feet on this box!  I want to decorate another one just to use the "feet". This is going on my dresser for special treasures!  Thanks for stopping by!

Inside - more rosetta's


  1. Love, love your cigar box! Your rosettes are perfect! I can't wait to work on my cigar box!

  2. It looks fabulous. I love the lace and the feet on your box. The rosette's inside and out give it a nice touch. Gotta get going on mine... so little time..
