The Train Station- Steampunk box

I've been playing with my Artistic Outpost Steampunk images again.
I had this little old cigar box that was just waiting to be transformed into something fun.
It was getting dark so my picture didn't come out as well as it could.
 I'll retake one in the daytime.

I love this, Lynn! You are so creative--I have old cigar boxes sitting in my craft room with papers and ink pads in them--I haven't done anything w/the boxes--they belonged to my dad years ago. Maybe someday I will be inspired to create something with one or two of them!

Looks awesome! I have a cigar box, but I don't think I'd have the heart to cover up the outside; it's pretty nice looking, haha.

Another fabulous alteration, Lynn. How do you come up with all these amazing ideas?

Barbara said...

That really is fabulous Lynn! I have a few cigar boxes that I got a Smoke Shoppe to save for me. Some of them are half as wide and twice as deep. I thought they would make awesome purses. Thanks for sharing yours with us. Love it.
