February Challenge Item

We have received some great comments and suggestions and wanted to give you a little advance notice and shopping time for our next challenge item. For the month of February we are asking you to alter a cigar box. You'd be surprised where you can find these little gems. Try a local cigar shop - they are often free or only $1-2. You can also find new ones made of paper mache, cardboard or wood at many major craft stores such as JoAnn's, Michael's, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, etc. (It's worth giving them a call before you go.) There might even be an old one hanging out in someone's attic! Any type of low, flat box with a lid will be accepted for this challenge. We'll be back on February 1st with our altered cigar box examples and the winner from the January clock challenge. Please email us with questions!
