I made this for my husband for his birthday so he had a place to keep all of his medals and such.  My brother-in-law had a deck of cards that he played 52 card pickup with too many times (quite a few were missing) and he gave it to me.  I had gotten this cigar box and figured it was the perfect size.
  I modge podged the cards face-down to give a good background to it and then put a full house ? on the top.

Then I painted the 4 symbols all around the sides.

 On the inside I put a picture of our daughter (she's 2 in that picture) wearing her "Born Lucky" t-shirt.


Sorry about the picture size, I tried to change it, but it didn't work.

That is really neat! Your daughter is a cutie too.  Cheesy

(And I believe your hand is a Straight Flush)

Ooh that is a good idea... some friends of mine love to play cards, and that would be a great gift - a box to store decks of cards.... I know I've got decks missing cards around here somewhere. Thanks for sharing! Smiley

I'm sure I may sound like an idiot but what exactly is modge podge.  How do you go about doing that.  I want to make projects using gigar boxes and that sounds like something i need to know so i can pull off a really cool box.

It's actually called "mod podge" and it's a glue/topcoat that you can buy in little plastic jars at the craft store. You can use it for just sticking things together or for sealing on top of something. I think on this project, it was used for both.

Very cool box by the way! I want to make one!

Yay!  Finally I have time to post photos!  The first one is one I painted for my daughter, it's Nightmare before christmas and it has gold paint on the side I freehanded.   The second one is a anniversary present to my husband.  He loves all that 50's stuff.  I have more boxes, but they're in the attic Sad
