A few weeks ago, I showed you a stash of wooden cigar boxes that Mom and I found at an estate sale.
A couple of you commented that you also had some boxes and wondered what to do with them. Well, let me tell you the rest of the story about those cigar boxes. I actually bought a brown paper bag full of wooden cigar boxes plus some extra goodies.
Along with the boxes there were two containers of beads and several pieces of felt AND…....a purse made from one of the cigar boxes!!!
The lady at the estate sale said she planned to make purses from all the cigar boxes, but had only finished one and lost interest.
I plan to sell the completed cigar box purse, but I’ll leave the purse-making to someone else. The extra cigar boxes will be sold as is for someone to use as they please. However, I did like the purse idea and I thought maybe this would give you an idea for how to repurpose your cigar boxes.
I’m taking my new purse to the following parties:
