A little while ago there was a thread about turning them into desktop zen gardens. If you try a search several links should pull up.

Where do you find cigar boxes if you don't know anyone who smokes 'em? Are they a commodity like altoid tins? I only have one cigar box. I wish there was an easy way to get more without having to empty my pockets!

see if any local cigar shops sell 'em for cheap, or check out some thrift/antique shops, sometimes they have 'em for sale. OR sometimes they have boxes just like cigar boxes at michael's or joann - they're usually made to hold school supplies, and they have them for around a dollar.

thanks for everyones ideas.

does anyone have any tips on decopauging? it seems the pictures (usually from magazines) always get bumpy.

my mum works at a mobile gas station. i guess cigars are really popular now cos kids are taking out the tobacco and filling it with weed. anyways, she goes through at least 2 boxes a week, and thats just at a gas station. if i were you i'd go anywhere they sell cigars and just talk to the people who work there, i'm sure they will save them for you, as long as you come regularly to pick them up.


p.s. i would love to make a purse. do you think it would work without wooden boxes?


i went to the paint/wallpaper store, and i got some old wallpapering books. one of them is Persian wallpaper, but it is cloth, like a rug. i have been lining the insides of my boxes with this. and they give the wallpaper books for free too!
