I was checking the blogs I follow and found a challenge for Fussy and Fancy Friday
which the host May chose Vintage..
I love vintage.. =) So I decided to make a vintage valentine cigar box gift for my parents.
Cigar Box: My fathers cigars
Paint: Americana Buttermilk
Papers: GCD "Botanique"
Papers: Recollections "Script Cream"
Papers" Heidy Swapp Folder (butterfly collection i think)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Craft Roses
Sticker: Embellishments pack from the dollar tree
I painted the cigar box in buttermilk, on top is used Botanique (used golden gel medium to adhere) the sides I used the Script paper and on the inside I used Heidy Swapp Folder cut up to fit. The doillie in the back is a vintage crochet doillie that I purchased from an antique store. I also used vintage lace, a picture of my parents inside a micheals frame. The frame i painted in buttermilk then "painted" Tim Holtz tea dye on top to give it a more vintage brown look. The acrylic beads are from michaels all flowers are from WIld Orchid Crafts.
