Embellished Cigar Box

By:

Save that old cigar box and create a recycled craft project. An Embellished Cigar Box from Lisa Fulmer looks great and is perfect for storage.

Embellished Cigar Box
 

Materials:

  • Empty cigar box
  • Gold foil mylar tissue
  • Alcohal inks in caramel, green and black
  • Timex
  • Lutradur
  • Color wach
  • Glimmer mist
  • Gold punchinella
  • Green polymer clay
  • Crackle medium
  • Square of glass
  • Metallic ink
  • Paint brush
  • Crystals

Directions:

  1. I covered the cigar box with wrinkled gold foil mylar tissue and painted the mylar with caramel, green and black alcohol inks.
     
  2. I wrapped a wide green woven fiber ribbon around the sides, and added gold leafing pen to the lip.
     
  3. On the top, I layered sheets of Timtex and Lutradur that I sprayed with color wash and glimmer mist.
     
  4. Then I embedded some gold punchinella into a strip of green polymer clay, and coated it with crackle medium.
     
  5. I finished it off with a square of glass (painted with metallic ink) and lots of gold and bronze crystals.
