I picked up a cigar box at a tobacco store recently and was immediately excited to turn it into a jewelry bow and re-decorate it. The exciting life I lead. Cigar boxes come in all shapes and sizes, some of which already have cool designs. The one I picked up wasn't too impressive so I covered the top with some gold fabric I had left over and stuffed it to make it have a padded top.
|Yes that's me in the arms of Malcolm McDowell.|
|So fluffy you could sleep on it.|
|On the bottom of the box.|
|I own a lot of strange pins.|
I ironed down the edges of the fabric to act as a hem and then after hot gluing that down I hot glued a trim around the edge so that it looked more finished. I nailed down the edged and tacked down the center of the top to make it look like a pillow. Then I hot glued the panel of fabric inside. After all that I only burnt myself one time!
