Shabby Chic Altered Cigar Box


Hi everyone and welcome to Lindy Stamp Gang's Bunny Hop! In celebration of Spring, the Design Team is here to share some fabulous "Spring" projects using Lindy Stamp Gang products. Get your eyes ready for some serious eye-candy because inspiration is in the air in preparation for the Lindy Stamp Gang Linky Party starting on April 15 through the 22nd. Visit the Lindy Stamp Gang BLOG for the "deets!" ☺

Now onto my project!

I created this "Spring" themed altered cigar box as part of a swap being hosted by my ever so glamorous and creative gal Jade over at Jadedstudios on YouTube. I used my Opal Sea Oats Starburst Stain and Dessert Moon Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz to shimmer-up the box and the flowers. I also used my Two-Toned Embossing Powders to glam up the bird cage and LSG metal butterfly charm. I love how Lindy Stamp Gang products add that little extra "POW" to all my projects!

Be sure to join us for the Lindy Stamp Gang Linky Party starting Arpil 15th, there are TONS of prizes to be won!

And don't forget to check out what the other ladies created for this Bunny Hop (scroll below!)

hugsies!
