    Last Summer my dh and I took a trip to San Antonio for a mini vacation while on the riverwalk we went into a smokeshop and they had cigar boxes (all kinds) They were for sale for different prices. we picked up four and paid about $4. altogether. I was just wondering if anybody thought about this for altered item or if they had already done this because if you keep on the lookout there are some real nice ones.

    I found one at the Goodwill and have altered the outside but not the inside yet. The smell of cigars is really strong in it. It is beautifully shaped though. I've been to the Riverwalk and it is beautiful there. Lisa

    Lisa, I saw them alter these on Creative Juice and they said to use charcoal (the kind they use in aquarium pums to filter the water)throw it in the box let it sit for a couple of weeks. The charcoal comes in a box in the pet dept. and it's cheap.

    Believe it or not, coffee works well too. Just put some coffee in a plastic dish and put it inside the cigar box. Close the lid and let it sit for at least a couple of weeks. Also, opening the box up and putting it out in the direct sun works well.

    Found it! It was on "craft lab" on DIY. However, if you go to DIY search and type in "cigar box" they also have a really neat altering project from the carol duvall show called "sea sponged wooden box"----VERY Pretty!!

    To remove the oder of anything, crumple up a newspaper and put it inside, let remain for about 3 days. It's cheaper than charcoal or coffee and most people have newspaper.

    Another thing that will remove odor is kitty litter. No kidding!
