The Crafty Witch: Hocus Pokus Spellbook

I was the one organizing the Halloween swap on the hair forum this year; and Here's one of the things I made for my swappie:

So, my big project (and fav) A Cooking Spellbook, inspired by Hocus Pokus :)

Filled with magical recipe; True Blood, Waffles Wands, Edward's Kiss, Butterbeer....

How I made the Spellbook;
-Reused a cereal box.
-Made a white ball out of modeling clay, stuck a teddy bear eye on it (I cruelly destroy plush to reuse their eyes and their filling...)
-Shaped a first layer of eyelid with red modeling clay, the next with newspaper+modpodge
-Newspaper for the other relief too; paint it all in brilliant red, played with paint after; brown, lighter shades of red, black, etc... With different dry brush techniques
-Sewn along the relief I made
-Had the "silver" details.
-Modpodged scrapbook paper inside the book (so you couldn't see the big roster anymore, ahah) and hide the sewing
-attached rubans, which holds the page. I was going to hand bound it but I figure it would take 3 eternity....
