CBCC #32....Altering!!!



Good Morning and Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today is Tuesday and time for another CBCC Challenge! This weeks challenge was to alter these cute cigar cases that Courtney sent each DT member. After deciding what design paper and embellishments to use, everything came together quite smoothly.



This cigar case is kind of small but a perfect holder for note cards! I used my craft knife and carefully honed out the divider. To keep fingers from snagging on any pieces of stubborn plastic, I lightly sanded the insides of the case. The DP is by Three Bugs in a Rug and the embellishments are Prima Flowers, ribbon and pearls.



For more inspiration on this weeks challenge, be sure to check out the CBCC DT members blogs. Should you decide to participate in this weeks sketch challenge, simply link your creation up to Courtney's Blog before next Tuesday. And..... If you upload to scs / pcp, please use keyword CBCC31.

Maria said...

Wow, your altered cigar case is awesome! Did you know, I bought a ton of them on Ebay a while ago. . they were used cigarette cases to alter similar to your cigar case. Unfortunately, I don't know where I stored the box of tins. Arggh! Your case reminded me I had them somewhere in my garage. Your altered case turned out BEAUTFIFUL! I jut had to shout that out! I love the flowers and the pretty colors. Fantastic job!!
