Altered Wooden Box + Video!

Today I am over on the Helmar Blog sharing an altered box.  
I would love to have you stop by!

I love making altered items for our home and as gifts so I am always on the look out for great finds!  I recently picked up this cute box at the Christmas Tree Shop for only $3.99!  Such a deal!

I love that it is hinged and includes glass in the top frame and this box has removable inserts for the dividers which makes it so much easier to alter!  It's the little that excite me :) 
I picked out some papers and trims and grabbed my Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and Helmar Crystal Kote spray and turned my box into this...
