Altered gift box

I whipped up this little altered gift box recently using another one of my favorite family images. (hubbies family) I picked up this star shaped box a few months ago for .50cents. I measured from the center point down each side 2- 1/2 inches and used an x-acto blade to cut out an opening to create a little shadow box. I covered the inside and the bottom of the box with sheet music from the 1900's.
Once that was done, I just keep gluing bits and pieces until it was completed. I had in mind a box of perfume that I was going to place inside of this box. Of course, it was bigger than I remembered it to be....
