This is the lid being assembled.
As seen from the inside of the lid.
The lid is on, the newspaper on the chest is going to be covered with brown wrapping paper which will be sprayed gold. This will resemble gold treasure.
I will then hot glue real treasure on top and it will not be heavy.
I still have a lot to do, I will be adding chains to the lid and base, I will be adding cardboard reinforcements on the sides and i have buttons that will look like studs on them too. I will be reinforcing the sides where i will be adding rope handles to carry it. then it will be painted too.
