April Wrap Up - Think Outside the Box

Hi everyone, it's Annette Green back to wrap up our April creative adventure "Think Outside the Box." I have to say, I had no idea when I proposed this challenge that it would be so difficult for so many of you to find a cigar box. I do apologize for assuming you would have as easy a time as I did obtaining one. (I guess cigar smoking is more popular here in the land of golfing retirees.) Thanks for being flexible and playing along with us, using any type of box you could. We loved seeing your creations! If you haven't yet, be sure to scroll through the previous posts from our fantastic CCB team and then check out other fellow artists' creations here.

I'm excited to share my altered cigar box with you today. It's a tribute to my Dad and his creative career. I hope you have a moment to join me on my blog where I take you through the steps I took to create this wall art, as well as a little story about Dad that inspired my creation.

Stay tuned on May 3rd, right here, for the next creative adventure hosted by our lovely Cheryl Grigsby. I'm looking forward to what she comes up with!


  1. Love what you've done here and I'm off to see the details. No worries, girl, coming up with these cigar boxes have led to some pretty awesome creations. Its been a great adventure!

  2. Thesis totally adorable!! Love the details and how you used box open faced.

    Thanks for Your flexibility!I like to use stash on hand instead of buying new,I am trying to let go of my Hoarder status! heeee

  4. I have been over to see your project and it is quite simply superb!! Anne x

  5. Love the unique, vertical orientation and the personal bits which are so much fun (the tiny car, the dangling keys). Also, I admire the monotones and the pop of red makes a great focal point. A treasure!

  6. I would have never thought of using the box that way. It's a great creative way to use the cigar box.
