Lucky for me that a few of my neighbors love cigars, because I’ve ended up with some of their empty wooden cigar boxes to craft with!
Recently, I turned this cigar box…
…into a little girl’s treasure box!
This was a project I did for DecoArt — I’m on their blogging team — and you can find my complete tutorial to make this on DecoArt’s website by clicking here: Floral Cigar Box.

Are you getting organized this month?
It always seems like the start of each new year is a good time to do so. I’m in the middle of organizing my craft studio. But I’m also one of those who tends to have a hard time locating things once I’ve tidied up. Hah!
How about you?
Wonderful transformation! I am so hooked on cigar boxes I have to control myself but they are such fun things to alter. What a treasured keepsake!!
Thanks Carol! I think I’m going to end up like you said and have to force myself to work on other projects: they are just so much fun to play with! 🙂

This turned out lovely!!
Thanks Meredith! I really appreciate the love!
Love this!!! Great tip on the baking soda, too.
Thanks so much Lynnee! Yes, the baking soda is KEY for any “real” cigar boxes! 😉
Adorable!! I love the colors you used Laura!
Thank you Heather! Isn’t it nice to see some fresh colors other than holiday colors we’ve been blogging about for the past few months? LOL
What a great project Laura! This is a great idea for a kid or parent! My daughter would love something like this. DecoArt products are so fab and so is the designer of this project *you!
Thanks Malia! That’s what is so fun about altering boxes, because they can be decorated a zillion different ways, for a zillion different people! 🙂
