  • Cigar Band Collections

     11-11-2011, 11:39 PM

    I am starting to get a nice collection of cigar bands, I try and keep all of them, and was wondering if anyone else does anything special with them? I was thinking of putting them on poster-board and making a collage of sorts to put under the glass on a coffee table or cabinet glasstop humidor. Let me know your ideas brothers!

    I sent mine to MTuccelli... the women in his family are super creative and do cool things with them.

    My wife surprised me the other day for our anniversary with this:

    Photobucket

    Now I just need to fill in the right side.

    Mike got mine as well. I usually keep all my bands and give them to someone here. I haven't tried to make anything but some of the guys here and their families are really talented and creative!

    I think I am going to glue them to posterboard and then use them on a glass top when it becomes available...wost case scenario I can always frame it

    Man I'm liking that, she did a great job. Been thinking about doing something like that with my bands.

    I'm doing a similar thing with mine but slightly different... putting all the bands on a poster board, then getting a matte black framing mat and cutting out a preferido cigar shape and putting it over it. So the end product is a cigar outline with the cigar being made out of bands. I also make cigar art from the boxes... drawer pulls from the tubos, and then carvings and stuff like that (card holders etc) from some of the other boxes. I'll post pics when I get some stuff completed.

    I have almost every single band from every single cigar I have smoked over the last year and a half or so in a great big cigar.com bag... it is out of hand. I need to go ahead and turn these into artwork for my walls, but just don't have the drive to do it yet. So, the bag gets bigger. I literally have hundreds and hundreds of bands in this bag.

    I put mine in a phone book today to try and flatten them out, hoping to start the collage this week

    Nice. Hadn't thought of that. That's a really good idea.

    I keep a 3 ring binder and glue stick in my desk. Saving the wrappers helps me to organize things in my brain. Each page from a certain blender or house. I also keep the COTM literature and other articles from Ccom mag, etc. The front part has a sleeve where I keep the correspondences from other BOTLs and business cards I've picked up along the way.
