Boîte De Cigare De Cru

After months of having this vintage cigar box sitting on my bookshelf, I decided it was time to dress it up a bit! My co-worker's birthday is just around the corner, so I was inspired to take her two favourite colours - blue and pink - and create a beautiful gift for her using some tissue paper and a little creativity. I went through all the cupboards, drawers and shelves in our craft room, and came across a few things I think she will fall in love with...antique music sheets, a Christmas coupon (from the '60's, which I found in an old book), some vintage lace, a rhinestone butterfly pin, an old postcard from England, a few initial blocks and a homemade gift tag using an image from Paper Relics, my new favourite website!
I hope she loves it!
