Altered Cigar Box into a Sewing Kit

I posted on the Crafty Corner page a super cute sewing kit I made from altering a cigar box.  I used scrapbook paper and some other things and created a very nice very practical gift for a new bride starting out her new married life.

If you are looking for gift ideas this is one that is easy to do, and almost guaranteed not to be a duplicate gift then this is it!  I tried to think back to when I was a new bride and what I had that I did not use, and what I needed and did not have.  A sewing kit was one of the things that I needed but did not have.  Who thinks of sewing stuff??!!  I do hope that this comes in handy for her and one day she will look back as she is reaching into it for a needle and thread and say 'Hey this was a pretty cool gift!  Very handy!'  :o)  An old cigar box turned into a cute sewing box.  Go check it out!

  1. Dear Karen..
    What a wonderful article.. It is so good to be reminded of the poor and needy. Our family is familiar with The Micaiah work in Russia as well and we will join you in praying for them.

    I pray that God grant you your desire to be able to GO and lend your talents and share your heart & gifts with these precious ones..

    God Bless you,
