Green Altered Cigar Box

I've finally got another jewelry box finished, except for the protective coatings. This one looks a lot like the first one I did, because the lady who ordered them wants them all similar. I don't like the corners on this one as much as I did the first one, but I don't have any more of those corners.

I've started the third one, but it's not as much fun to make the same box over and over again. I like variety! :-)

Sorry this view is blurry, but I've got so much going on that I hurried with the photos.

This is how it looks open. I added pale gold Core'dinations Pearl CS for all the bottoms, and the top of the box, but decided to paint the dividers. It looks neater than covering them with CS.

This is the box with the top layer of dividers removed.

The boxes are gorgeous and I know what you mean about doing the same thing over and over. If she commissions more perhaps she needs to know that they could be all a bit different. just saying
I guess that is why my cards don't follow the same pattern. LOL
Anyway, they are gorgeous and I like the idea of a painted inside.

Wow, I really like this idea. What a fun way to reuse a nice box.

All your cigar boxes are beautifully created, Kathi. I love all the gold accents you decorate them with.
I make quite a few commission cards, but unfortunately they're not my style. Most of them are requests from the young guys my son works with. They aways ask for weird stuff and I end up searching the Internet for images of transformers, or sci fi stuff.....hardly ever anything feminine xx
