Money box

Last night I managed to finish a box that I have been decorating. Its a kind of money box. I covered it using graphic 45 french country and ranger matte medium to stick it down. Dies are tim holtz bigz keys & lock. I then glued a few old coins to the top ! Bit of a weird make but Ive had the box for about 6 months and high time I did something with it ! Hope you are all enjoying the weather, have fun.
Thanks for looking x
