Cigar Box 21 - Kiss a Frog

"You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your handsome prince" is a popular phrase related to the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale “The Frog Prince” used to encourage those who still seek true love.  

This past Christmas, a good friend gave me an adorable frog prince ornament that had a very special meaning - I had finally found my prince a few months earlier :)   

Sometime later, I ran across DCWV's "The Once Upon a Time Stack" at one of the local craft stores, and I spotted the frog prince page and coordinating pages.  Need I say more?


Once upon a time, Angie made a Kiss-a-Frog altered cigar box to match her Frog Prince Christmas ornament.  The Frog Prince is on the outside of the box, and the inside of the box says "Kiss a Frog" and "There lived a handsome Prince."  Angie and her Prince thereafter lived happily ever after.  The End. 

(That's my story and I'm sticking to it...)

Published in Just Cards! Christmas!

Christmas already????  Oh well.  Here are four (4) cards of mine that are published in the Christmas 2013 magazine.


The card pictured below was made with two (2) empty
Diet Mountain Dew cans cut and run through the die cutter machine.
