Cigar Boxes

I happened upon some cigar boxes and knew I could come up with something. Put my creativity gloves on and got to work!!!
From this.....

I recently opened a booth at a local flea market and needed something to carry my "fixin' stuff" in.
Cigar box #2
From this....
to this....holds my tape and hot glue sticks
Took the "blade" off a foil box and hot glued onto the cigar box. It's all in one place.

Zak turns SeVeN!!!!!!

My son turned 7! He wanted a Beyblade party which I thought would be easy to do....I was mistaken. There isn't much out there so I had to be creative.
