This is the first Graphic 45 April Upcycle Challenge project I designed. I used a gifted cigar box from my sister Mary to create a keepsake box which holds mini album and trinket box.
I covered the entire cigar box with ordinary package mailing paper. I distress it using Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The hardware I used was purchased from Ali Express.
Glad I held onto the cigar box collection my sister gave me because I love the way this keepsake box turned out. It’s very versatile and can be used to hold craft room tools and items, jewelry, stationery, or memorabilia.
You can watch a video of this project on my YouTube channel. I have added links below to some of the products I used to create this project.
