It's another gorgeous day for inspiration with Graphic 45! Thank you all for joining us! There's lots of fun in store for you today as we showcase some stunning Altered Art boxes by Hilde Janbroers and Gloria Stengel of our design team! Indeed, this is the season for thinking about beautiful handmade gifts. It is our mission to bring you as much inspiration as possible during the holidays! Today's crafts are sure to give you some wonderful ideas. There is so much that can be created with our Altered Art Boxes. The possibilities are endless. Each box contains a sweet Kraftboard mini album so you can create something that's both beautiful and heart-warming. This first stunning altered box was created by Hilde Janbroers. This box has so much vintage charm, fabulous use of our Metal Tag Staples and Metal Hinge Staples, as well as our adorable paper collection An ABC Primer. Here is what Hilde had to say about this lovely and charming creation.
"A real keepsake! I decorated the box with lots of fun embellishments.. In the mini book I added some old school photos from my grandfathers sisters and brother. This box is a great way to collect lots of photos and create a real treasure." -Hilde Janbroers

Next up is this exquisite 5x8 Altered Kraftboard Art Box by Gloria Stengel. This box is like a dream come true! Decorated in our Le Romantique collection and adorn with beautiful embellishments, this altered art box is pure class! It is sure to sweep you off your feet! Here is what Gloria had to say about this marvelous creation.
"I used one of the 5x8 Kraftboard Altered Art Box Staples to create a memory box. I removed the matching accordion mini album (which I can use for another project) and turned this art box into the perfect storage box for letters, memorabilia, jewelry, and more! I used four of the Metal Button Staples to create feet for my box, and bent one of the large Metal Tag Staples to create a latch. I painted all of the metal white, to go with the romantic mood of the box." -Gloria Stengel
