Box # 26

Here is my completed box for Coraline’s Mystery Box swap.

I guess sharing this with you doesn’t make it a very big mystery, but what I’ll be getting in the mail soon is.

1. Box# 26-Outside, 2. Box# 26- Coraline Doll1, 3. Box# 26- inside1, 4. Box# 26- Coraline Doll2

I had the hardest time with finding a box.  I finally ended up painting a box that was already half painted lavender. The outside isn’t what I had intended, but it’s the inside that counts, right?

1. Box# 26- inside lid, 2. Box# 26- buttons

I made a small Coraline doll with a felt body and a polymer clay face.  The face is glued and stitched in place. Then I made a little hand, a seeing stone and key, all with polymer clay.  There’s also some buttons, thread, a thimble and some needles. Lastly, the inside lid is painted with a circus theme, which I loved in the movie. I also really love the garden, but nothing garden-y made it into the box. Ah well.

Cant wait to see what I get.  There are some really great boxes out there.

    Um..Wow. That is fantastic! I went to see this movie because my ten year old read the book and loved it. I really wasn’t expecting such a great movie. Your doll is perfect, love the felt and clay combo, and the circus scene interior is too fun! Great job! 🙂

    Absolutely delightful! I was wondering when you would unveil your creation – I had been looking forward to seeing what you would come up with after I saw you scribbling your ideas in your notebook when we saw the movie together. I still REALLY want blue hair:) Very nicely done sister! I love you!

    This is so great – a little mystery, a lot of fun. Aren’t you fortunate to be in this swap.

    I love your box. The circus detail is so creative…wish I had thought of it. 🙂 And your Coraline doll is amazing. Fantastic job!

    Wow! Your Coraline is spot on. I would love to watch the movie too, but have heard it was better viewed by older kids (a bit scary for the under 5 crowd). I’ll have to rent this one and watch it on date night with my hubby. Anyway, your box is outstanding and inspiring. Your boys must get a real kick out of their creative mom.
