Butterfly Kiss Altered Cigar Box

I started this altered box last month at our local crafty group get together. Louise led us in using a wooden cigar box from the Dollarama and we glued patterned paper of our choice to it, sanded the edges and sponged it with distress ink. For my main image, I used a precious photostamp from The Stampsmith called, Butterfly Kiss.

Here's a front shot to show you the little feet and the dimension of the flower that I made and the butterfly that I cut out.

Here's a side angle...

and a close up of the flower...

This was a fun project...I think this will make a nice little gift when filled with something special.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
