Hey Guys,
Well on this snowy freezing day, I bring you something that I hope will brighten your day up a little.  I altered a little round wooden box that I have had on my 'alter it' shelf in my studio, for literally years, and because I wasn't doing much, it was always overlooked and other things were favoured more to alter! So I thought it was time this little guy was used and made to look gorgeous and I hope I achieved that. I am still full of flu and ache all over more than usual so I hope to be a little better next week where I will be doing my favourite way of making videos as a full 'start to finish' tutorial and my proposed project is a wooden wall plaque that I am going to cover in Wild Orchid Crafts delicious goodies! So without further ado here is the video and further down I will add some pics....................xx

 below are some photos:

 above is the back of the box
