Vintage Map Cigar Box

Transforming a Cigar Box with Vintage Maps

Recycled Map Box

Welcome, fellow crafters, to a whimsical journey of creativity and transformation! Today, we’re diving into the enchanting world of decoupage with a twist, as we breathe new life into a humble cigar box using the power of vintage maps, Mod Podge, and a sprinkle of DIY magic.

Imagine stumbling upon a dusty old cigar box in a thrift store—what potential lies within its weathered exterior? With a dash of creativity and a touch of whimsy, we’re about to find out!

To start our project we are going to paint a base coat of a neutral beige color on the entire box so that the background of our box will not show through on our finish project.

Our journey continues by selecting the perfect vintage maps to adorn our cigar box. Each crease tells a story, each faded corner whispers secrets of adventures long past. From Parisian streets to exotic islands, the choice is yours to make.

With precision and patience, we delicately arrange the vintage maps onto the cigar box, ensuring a seamless blend of nostalgia and whimsy. The key to successful decoupage lies in the art of craftsmanship, as we apply Mod Podge generously, bonding the maps to the surface with a magical touch.

But wait, there’s more! To give your box a shiny glossy finish, brush the entire box with a glossy sealer or mod podge.

There you have it, dear crafters! Our thrifted cigar box has undergone a marvelous metamorphosis, emerging as a beacon of creativity and charm. With each stroke of Mod Podge and each coat of shiny glaze, we’ve turned a forgotten treasure into a portal to far-off lands and whimsical adventures.

So, the next time you stumble upon a forgotten gem at the thrift store, don’t just see it for what it is—see it for what it could be! Let your imagination run wild, and remember: the world is your canvas, waiting to be transformed by your creative touch.

Until next time, stay crafty, keep spreading those creative vibes, and happy crafting, adventurers!
