Frenchy Upcycled Cigar Box

As I was loading these photos tonight, it dawned on me that I really need to start taking some before pictures of my projects.  Sigh!  I always seem to forget.  Anyway, I picked up this cigar box at the local church thrift store last Friday and wanted to use it to hold my rhinestones.  But first it needed a French touch:
I printed the label from The Graphics Fairy and mod podged it to the cover.  I also printed some crown images for the sides of the box but it's hard to see them.
I hot glued some vintage lace all around the sides of the box and added the flower.
Then I added the same crown images from the outside to the inside of the box.  It holds my rhinestones perfectly for future craft projects!
