So I have finally worked out what to do with the large number of cigar boxes that I have been bringing home from work for the last few years. Cigar box handbags/purses. I looked on etsy  and found a crafter who was making bags so beautiful - real works of art.The address of  her Etsy shop is listed below
My first bag is almost finished - it just needs a coat of varnish before attaching the handle.  After struggling for several weeks I have now realised why no-one has a gusset to stop items spilling out the bag - it is next to impossible.  So I am now going with plan B no gusset!
Hopefully I will be listing it on Etsy tomorrow.


  1. Love to see photos when you have finished it!
