Altered cigar box

Hi everybody, I wanted to show you all what I made for my grand niece Erin since she is finishing her first year at Yale. She is on the Yale Lacrosse team so I made some personalized note cards that reflect her sport.
My idea was to give her a keepsake box and riff on the idea of Alice in Wonderland. I used Graphics 45 paper to decoupage the cigar box. I wanted to place the words "Erin in Yaleland" on the box so I used Photoshop to make the letters using "curlz" font, mirrored/flipped the words and printed on Graftix "rub-onz" specialty paper which made a great rub-on to place anywhere I wanted on the box.
On the inside I made a paper divider and placed a dozen personalized notecards to one side of the divider and on the other side of the divider a bookmark I made with the Alice theme and a pack of stamps.

I hope she likes it but I know I like it.
