3rd DT post using Stampendous Stamps for JB Crafting Supplies

Hi - hope everyone has had a good week & is enjoying the lovely weather.
For my 3rd DT piece for JB Crafting Supplies using Stampendous Stamps Steampumk Shoes I decided to alter a box to keep all my brads etc in.
Having found a box, I cut pieces for the sides & top from Docrafts Papermania Chronology paper, distressed the edges using rusty hinge Distress Ink. Stamped images onto 2 pieces to go onto the sides.
Adhered the paper onto the box, went around the edges using frayed burlap DI.
Die cut pieces from brown card using a Nellie's multiframe die set - square lily, attached them to the top of the box & on the 2 sides that did not have stamped image, used some Creative Expressions metallic gilding wax in midnight to give it an aged look. Decided to use the gilding wax around the corners.
Put some Docrafts Papermania brads in the corners of the lid & attached a watch face charm with a brad to the centre.
