Christmas Emporium Altered Cigar Box And Mini

This is the third project I made for the G45 "Featured Artist" spot. I altered a wooden cigar box and attached it to a 7Gypsies tray and placed a matching mini in the middle of the two. I used G45's Christmas Emporium paper collection, black policy mini book, chipboard buttons and lace.

I used Tim Holtz legs on the tray and cigar box to make it stand up.
 I added some snowflake brads to the old handle for decoration.

 I used twine to hold the mini book closed.
 In the inside of the box I used G45's Ornate Door Plate for decoration.
I used 5 envelopes to categorize the pages.
 Inside each envelope there is a long tag for journaling.
 On the opposite page of the category is a matte for one photo.
