Hello everyone,

My name is April and this is my first cigar box purse (as well as my first "real" post). I never really had the balls to post here because you guys kick ass at this craft stuff and I feel inferior. But anyway, Hobby Lobby had these boxes 50% off, so it was $4.



I am a button maker and thought I would add some to the front

I lined the inside with some clearance pinstripe walmart fabric

So yeah, part of me feels like its kinda ugly, but then another part of me likes it. I bought another box and I decided it's going to have Goodfellas on one side and Casino on the other. I'm going to make matching buttons for those too... guns, cards, dice, etc.

I also made a few other things and if my camera batteries weren't charging right now, I'd muster up the courage to post those too.

Smiley
-April

I love your bag! It shows a bit of YOU!  Nice job--keep up the good work--are the pictures protected in anyway, like with mod podge? Do the beads hurt your hands when you carry it?

muggabugga, never fear to post again! Your work is great!

That box is really cool. I'd like to see the goodfellas box - that sounds interesting.

Looking for more from you.

Thank you guys for making me feel better!

There is a coat of Mod Podge over the picture and a coat of varnish over the whole box. I think next time I'd like to use matte varnish instead of glossy. The beaded handle is very comfortable. The box itself is very light because it is not a real cigar box, it's the cheap stuff.

Other boxes I'd like to make are Amelie, Eternal Sunshine, & Eddie Izzard. It would be great if I could get good enough at it to sell them, but I'm too critical of my work.

Make sure to post a picture of the Amelie one if you make it!   I love Amelie!
