Project Tuesday-Acetate Box

This turned out so much cuter than I ever anticipated! My little Frankenstein is an acetate box filled with green M&M's. Acetate can be purchased in sheets at almost any hobby store. I got mine at Michael's. It is not easy to score! A bone folder is a definate necessity! The tutorial/links to examples for an acetate box can be found here. I did not follow the tutorial's measurements...I winged it hehe. I used circle punches to create the eyes and nose. On the detail photo you can see the black Sharpee lines I drew on for the scars and mouth. The bolts are a large silver brad on top of two washers from the hardware store. I knew those washers would come in handy some day! Please be sure to stop by Project Tuesday to see the design team's different examples of this! You won't want to miss this one! We'd love for you to play along with us too!
