Altered treasure chest

Playing around with some more Kaboodle Doodle bits, this time it's the skulls kit using the images instead of the papers. The treasure chest was originally part of a clever wedding present given to my mum but i accquired it once the present had been dug up lol (there was a treasure chest theme to the present)... so i took some black and gold tissue paper and pva glue and recovered the whole chest.. then i glued on and glazed over the skulls images and placed a treasure map on the base of the inside of the chest... now i can use it as a bead stash box lol!

this is excellent - my kids would really love it - they love playing pirates and hiding a "treasure" chest!!

ok, i've just made the mistake of showing your box to my little-uns, and isaac is saying "i want that, i want that!!!", so I'm going to either have to go and find a chest-like box or buy this one off of you!!!
