A Cigar Box Swap @ MAS & A Tag Swap @ MSR

I participated in the V-Day, St. Patrick's or Partner's Choice Cigar Box Swap @ & the Bona's Mixed Media Doll Tag Swap @

For the cigar box,  I used the new Prima Lyric paper collection, I Am Roses Flowers, a metal key, metal bird and wooden birdcage from Michael's Craft store.  I created the paper doily using the We R Memory Keepers mini 8 punch. Check it out on YouTube.

For the Tags, I used the Prima Lyric & Romance Novel paper collections. I also used I Am Roses Flowers, ribbons, laces, feathers, skeleton leaves, pearls, bling and metal charms.  I created a bit of dimension by using some molding paste with a couple of Crafter's Workshop stencils.
