Altered Cigar Box for Eve (Swap on Scrappyhappiness Ning)

Opps... sorry that I haven't posted in 3 weeks! I do have some new projects! Just didn't got down to photographing cos it's lacking some finishing touches. But I promise I'll post soon!

Anyway here's an altered cigar box I made for Eve for the swap she hosted on Scrappyhappiness Ning. Was supposed to use Graphic45 papers actually but the paper hasn't arrived yet so I used some Webster's instead (with her blessings of course).

Eve, if you are looking, hope you like it! :)

Some close ups. I totally <3 the photo that Eve uses as her avatar, so I made her a box in a similar color scheme just so that I can put her photo on the cover :) Actually, I did a similar 12x12 layout with Jaz in class some time back. Will share when I have the time!

That's all for now folks!

Update: This project also earned me a feature on Webster's Pages Forum (Ning).


  1. Wow, this is insanely stunning!!!(: Erm where did ya get that cigar box from? I am also participating in a cigar box swap, but I can't find a cigar box in Singapore. Please help! Thanks (:

  2. Hi E-Zen. thanks for the compliments :)

    regarding the cigar box, it was sent to me by a scrapper friend from USA who participated in a swap that I'm hosting (so she sent it to me together with the swap items). Yea, I agree. it's really difficult to find one in Singapore.

    but if u are really having trouble getting one, what I can suggest is for you to use a chocolate box instead. head by the nearest supermarket and go look for a box of chocolate with the top-flap lid, just like a cigar box, and use that instead. I'm sure your partner wouldn't mind :)
