An altered box. (Gift-box for my grand-daughter)

Today i'd like to show you the gift-box I've made for my grand-daughter (Toni)
She is 21 today.
Toni loves boxes & is a keen collector of anything & everything,
So this should come in very handy for storing "things"
I might put some photographs in as a keepsake.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges.

This is the plain box I started with.


First I distressed the sides & stuck paper on, then distressed it again.

 
Then I did the same with the lid.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To give it a more vintage look,
I distressed a square of MDF,
Then stuck a watch & some old washers on.
 
 
 
 
Finally I added a key.
 
 
 
The finished box, I hope you like it.
 
Items used.
