Arctic Antarctic Decorated Cigar Box~Wolves Polar Bears Penguins Whales Old Rusty Ships~Custom Made~Repurposed Cigar Box~All Occasion Gift



Artic Antarctic custom decorated cigar box. This is a sample box.
Perfect box for someone that likes wolves, whales, polar bears, penguins, and sea animals. Request your favorite to be featured on the lid of the box. I use glitter glue on the snow and elsewhere to accent the objects. The knob is glass and metal. I used glitter glue on the metal feet and the lid to make the box more dimensional. The box in the pictures is apx 9x7x2”. Subsequent boxes will be apx 8x7x2” or larger. (The blue rimmed box was one of a kind). Depending on your preferences, the embellishments will be different (Polar bears, penguins, etc). Very cute box with just the right amount of glitter.

My boxes are all made individually. No two are the same. Embellishments and adornments may differ slightly from the picture. I add feet and knob to the boxes that are in balance with the size and style of the box. I welcome your input!

Superb design! Creative materials! Professional finish! Linda created a beautiful Arctic/Antarctic box according to my specifications, and shipped it with care so that it arrived in perfect condition.

Linda, this Antarctic box is so beautiful and interesting and I’m so happy it’s mine. I love it’s slightly small-ish size. The blue glitter, looking frozen on the legs, not only added dimension but extended the theme even more. You have endless vision and an ability to create large stories in a small empty cigar box. Lifting the lid took my breath away, showing a once great ship stuck in the arctic ice. What a story!!! You are exceptional at what you do. And It arrived packed so well, all safe and sound, in good time. I will never part with my Antarctic box. I will be back to shop for more stories and dreams. Thank you. Pamela 11-2-22

Care instructions

CARE OF YOUR BOX: I suggest that the box not be displayed in direct sunlight as it will fade the paper. Also, it is not advisable to display the Decorated box in a steamy bathroom or very humid area. I use only very good quality scrapbook paper that is meant to last for years, but it does require a bit of caution taken.

Sizing details

The size of the cigar box I choose is dependent on the paper and the design. Most paper that I use is 12x12” and is usable on most size boxes. Some papers are 6x6 or 8x8 and have to be used on smaller boxes. Please ask if you would like a different size box than shown. I will let you know if it is doable. I will do everything I can to make it happen.

Why does my custom box take up to 3 weeks to complete?

I put a lot of thought and planning into each box. A Custom box takes longer because the planning stage is added to the creating stage. As I am creating this box, I may need to order additional items. Most of the time, I search for embellishments that will make the decorated box more unique and personalized. Your input is welcome! I want it to be amazing!
The ‘Custom Order’ button is not available in my shop. But I do customized versions of all the listings in my shop.
I only use the best brands of paper to create my boxes. If you see a paper collection in one of these brands that you love, contact me.

Will my Decorated Cigar Box smell like cigars?

No. I don’t use cigar boxes that have an odor to them.
