Recently I was given a stack of Cuban Cigar boxes.  They are so pretty and well made, I personally don’t smoke cigars but I really wanted to use them and show off there pretty designs.  Of course, originally the 9 x 5 artwork phase started from a cigar box so I thought it was keeping good company to restart another form of cigarbox art.   Now I have gone mad!! My poor friend is apparently smoking madly to keep up with demand!!  (I feel slightly guilty about his health) but they are so lovely to work with and I have been trying to keep to a cuban theme.  I have been doing little boats sailing along, with a cuban vintage map in the background and some other form of display with the boat.  Ive made them so that they can hang on the wall and I’m currently in the process of changing the artwork and incorporating an Australian theme.  I particularly like them in the portrait configuration but the only problem then is that the box artwork is the wrong way but I think i’m being to picky.  Its fun that the lid can close and open when its on the wall, like a little surprise really.  I will keep you posted……
