I randomly recalled the stacks and stacks of old empty cigar boxes my dad used to have behind the bar in our house. My brother and I used to take some to build houses for our toys, mini disney character figures and “their” pokemon. I remember how great they smelled–a woodsy comforting aroma I loved. I’ve come up with an innovative idea for them, but unfortunately I haven’t seen them in years. I texted my dad and asked him what happened to them but he said he doesn’t know and to ask Mom. I fear that she threw them all out since she’s the opposite of a packrat. I’m going to call her later and ask because I really want to use them.
Anyway, this led me to do a preemptive search on cigar boxes on the internet and found beautiful images of cigar box labels and cigar bands. I can’t wait to get my hands on at least one box I can manipulate for my crafty purposes! >:D There’s plenty of images on the internet but here’s a few I liked.
There’s a huge varied collection of labels and bands out there that are really cool. I encourage a google image search to see more.
