Here it is the last project by Nikki.  It's a beautiful altered jewelry box she decorated using Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary.  I adore altered boxes, and this one is not only gorgeous, but has a practical use of housing jewelry.  Nikki transformed a plain wooden jewelry box into this fantastic work of art.  If you can't find a jewelry box, a cigar box would be perfect for this project.  Most cigar shops sell them for a couple of dollars.
