I really wanted to make a monster-type box/book ala Harry Potter, but had hit a wall until I came across the secret box book project, which I used as the base and then went on from there! I used resin teeth pendants for the teeth and hand-sculpted the 'gums' from porcelain clay, which I then painted with several different blue and purple hues before varnishing for a wet look. I scavenged the eyes from my 'miscellaneous craft stuff' box. I still need to finish living the inside of the box.

Thius is great, I would really like tyo turn this in to a dadcando project one day so that everyone else can have a go at it too! I love it.
Although a single mum, I'm relieved that my daughter (now 5) has the benefit of her father and I still being very good friends.
Reading, writing, crafts and figuring out what insane thing my daughter is going to attempt next.
