My friend Kim always sends me the most thoughtful gifts She keeps a box open for me and throws things in she knows I love.
In one of her recent goodie boxes was a neat cigar box that appeared to be made from Balsa wood. (duh never took a before pic).
This is my first attempt at altering a box. I painted it white with gesso then black with acrylic paint. I then used silver rub and buff along the edges. Then a vintage doily and mica flakes. I added a little clasp and Here it Is!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I have sharing it with you!
