Baby Keepsake Box (eventually...)

I wanted to make a keepsake box for my friend last year, when her baby boy was born. I bought a wooden box, but then spent ages trying to work out how to decorate it. I was going to cover it with mosaic tiles, but then was worried I'd ruin it, and every design I came up with looked stupid.

Anyway, a whole year later I finally finished it, just in time for his 1st birthday! I used photos of him as he's grown over the year, and added small squares of paper to try to give a patchwork effect. I covered all the squares with PVA glue, so hopefully that will keep them all stuck down!
