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.
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?
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.
