I get cigar boxes for free at the local newsroom. I subscribe to a few magazines pertaining to things that interest me; ocean beach scenes and seascapes, art and design, photography, etc.

I rip out pieces of the pages depicting what I want to feature and overlap the pieces artfully on the boxes. Spray polyeurethane and voila, a beautiful box for keepsakes or storage.

What kind of paint is the best to use on cardboard? And do you have to use Kilz on it to cover up what is printed on it like you do a wall that is painted and you are changing color? Do you have to seal it and if you do seal it what do you use? I want to paint some cigar boxes for to use to put things in.
