Altered Matchbox gift

I altered a small match box for a good friend's birthday gift today after being inspired by Becky Shander's article "Teeny, Tiny Boxes"in the latest Somerset Life magazine.  You can see her project on her blog:

For mine I used some brown papers from Simply Stories Documented 6x6 paper pad, Ranger Distress Stains (picket fence and broken china) to distress the edges of the box and added some vintage doodads as her gift inside the box (some old shoe buttons in aqua blue, a lingerie pin, a bird charm, and a chipboard heart with distressed flower brad/bar, and a tiny millinery flower.
