My husband has started a nasty habit of smoking cigar which I am not fond of at all!  But on the up side he gives me the empty cigar boxes to decorate!  That is what my project is made from today!

I used Tim Holtz hardward for the legs and my designer paper is from Fancy Pants Oct. 31.  The little spiders are from Jolee and the large metal spider is actually a pin you where on your shirt and is from Michaels.  I sanded the cigar box and wiped it with Black Soot Distress Ink.  The spider web skirt is from a Martha Stewart punch.

The image is called "Tricks or Treats" and is available at Love to Stamp.

I love this particular cigar box because it had cool partitions in the inside.

To make the large rosette on the cover I used a piece of 2" x 12" piece of designer paper and punch it with a Martha Stewart punch.  Score every 1/2", turn it over line it up on the 1/4" mark and score again every 1/2".  Fold back and forth and attach the end together with Scor-Tape to create a cirlce.

For the ribbon I used Stampin Up! black grosgrain ribbon, I liked it because it was a little stiffer then regular ribbon.  Score every 1/2".
Place a piece of Scor-Tape on the back and fold to create tabs.  I used six tabs on each side and a loop of ribbon for the middle.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have lots of fun hopping and good luck!
