Has anyone made these ? A friend was telling me about them and she is making some . I was told they are high dollar in the stores..
I have gone on the internet and they are interesting .
I could only remember putting pencils in them at school ... so the cigar box has come a long way in the last 30 years ..

it wouldn't be a pun if it was spelled right. You have missed the pun...I just thought you got it. hawhahahaha you were just making a dig...and here I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. It is kinda like accept and except.

That "accept" and "except" was the thing that threw me! You sometimes say "except" when I know dang well you don't really MEAN that.

Guess we better move to the other forum before we completely destroy another thread.

The purses are toooooooooooo cute!!.......but bloody expensive!!!
Does anyone besides me remember going and getting cigar boxes for FREE...from the corner pharmacy...and using them for your pencil box at school?... :?: :?:

Yep! I sure do! Course I didn't actually go get them, myself, but I remember my dad bringing them home for me. I never knew where he got them. I remember covering one with fabric and padding the lid for a pincushion. The box kept all my sewing paraphernalia. I think I did that project in jr. high. I may still have that box up in my attic!

I remember the cigar boxes from 1st - 3rd grade or so. And in high school, I too kept some paraphernalia in a cigar box. But that's another topic for another day...

The cigar boxes of our day were the same for everyone. Some now are wooden and very pretty. I know some that have bought just the box and have had to buy the last cigars to get it.
They make more than purses out of them. I have seen music instruments made from them. :)

Sounds like if you put a roll of duct tape and some bailing wire in them, you would have everything you could possibly need!
