Altered gift box

I am finally posting this!   It is very difficult for me to delay it any longer as I really want to show off this altered box I made for a special friend's birthday.    I shall not mention the name here, so hopefully she did not get to see this post until she receive the box in the mail.   This altered box was completed last monday, but I added a few other finishing touches over the past one  week.

I am also entering this for the Sir Stampalot September challenge - All distressed

Here are the photos of the box I made :-
