Altered Box for a Little Boys Treasures

This is a wooden box that I altered for a co-workers little boy.  My youngest grandson always loved boxes and all types of storage containers when he was smaller which is what gave me the idea for this box. 

My co-workers son is 3 years old and has lots of little treasures that he carries with him where ever he goes.  So I decided to make this box as sturdy as possible for his little hands. 

I painted the box and then used Mod Podge to attach the cardstock to the front lid and to the inside of the box.  I used the cardstock from the TAC Hip Hop collection.  Once everything was dry I applied a couple more coats of Mod Podge to help seal and protect the box. 

Fortunately the box was a hit with the little boy and his mom says he takes it every where he goes.  To me - there's no better compliment than that.
