A little secret. . .

Although we have always released product in between shows, we decided to actually show the mid-release for the fall this time at CHA-S and take preorders (as a "split-ship if you will.  These items will ship Oct. 1st).  This product of course consists of an extension to our classic Red/Black line (my favorite yet!) as well as a few other goodies that have been secret until now. . .

Introducing my full size, divided, reproduction Cigar Box!!  It comes fully wrapped with the vintage imagery you see pictured below (and last photo), although the bottom of the inside of the box remains kraft color.  It is perfect as-is for all of your studio storage needs or would make a GREAT gift box for a teacher, etc., filled with goodies!

However, my favorite use of course,  is to alter it!  This is my sample for show (using our new extension papers).  I created everything you see but I LOVE that you can add bits and pieces from your collection of vintage goodies too (like the flower frog and the old stamp pad shown here).  The box is not wood, but it is a very heavy board and is very sturdy.  And I love the fact that you could close this up and put it away easily for storage (image one for Halloween, one for Christmas, one for Valentines, etc.)!

I'm so very excited about this.  I hope you are too!!





Pin It!

How cool! Love the idea of having for each holiday. 'Storing' it is a deco in itself. I can imagine a stack of 2 or 3 on my sofa table...

This is the cutest thing!!! I am a box-a-holic! I will definitely need this. I love that it is a CIGAR BOX!!! When I got engaged, my now-husband looked everywhere for a cigar-band-ring to propose to me with...and alas, he couldn't find one. Since then, I have been in love with cigar boxes of all kinds! LOVE THIS!
