Shabby Chic Cigar Box

A few weeks ago I shared with you the altered cigar boxes that I've been doing for a swap on Facebook. Today I want to give you a closer look at Shabby Chic box #2.

When I think of Shabby Chic I think of pastel colors and a project that looks as though it has weathered time. A softer side of grunge. Most people think of Shabby Chic and they reach for pink, blue, and yellow, but I wanted something different. I decided to use the Hollywood Vogue collection from Webster's Pages. I love the elegance of this paper line and the colors offered that hint of the unexpected I was wanting with its peach, lavender, and green color pallet.
