cigar box for your guys

From Corinne Alexandra:
This was a super simple project that really made our guys feel special. The final boxes were presented to each groomsman in a whiskey glass with promises of a guys’ night to celebrate.

1. We bought unfinished cigar boxes at Artists & Craftsman Supply to hold a single short cigar.

2. The boxes were stained and sanded for a richer wood color.

3. Once the boxes dried, I cut basswood to make little dividers for housing tiny pine cones we gathered to go with the woodland theme of our wedding.

4. We tied everything up with some twine for a rustic touch and added a sprig of pine.

5. For the tags, just print on card stock or plain printer paper, cut along the designated edge, hole punch, and tie on with twine. (download the gift tag template here)
