Barbara

Earlier this year, my friend Charlie asked me to make a purse as a surprise for his wife, Barbara. He provided me with a stack of her favorite nature and bird oriented greeting cards to choose images from. Together, we selected this beautiful image by air brush artist Wendy Morgan to make into a cigar-styled label for a purse. For the image itself, I only gave it an aged look and then added the bijoux and some jeweled eyes and a rather generic “Havana Finest Cigars” graphic. The paper I used for the interior is one of those lovely World Market papers I am so fond of lately.

I am very pleased with how it turned out. Barbara was thrilled and very surprised!

  1. Sonya, what a surprise to see the beautiful purse you made for me on your blog. I just love the purse and enjoy showing it with pride to my friends who are amazed that something so beautiful and creative can be made from a cigar box. You are truly talented!!
