I remember as a child a large trunk that stood in my Aunts room, that had vintage pics glued to the inside lid. While I was redoing this small chest, memories of that one came back to me.
This is my treasure chest in progress, it was green on the outside, and a gold velvet on the inside.
I used flowers from our wedding day (17 1/2 years ago). A thrift store pic frame, and some ribbon.
I decoupaged the inside with pics from magazines. I also wrote a little poem, about a treasure chest.
I now store my pens, and cards in here, so I know what kinds I have, and WHERE I have them.

Most of the treasure chest materials were bought at a thrift store.  I now know where my cards are!
