Its been awhile since I made this for the Back to Hogwarts swap but I am finally getting around to making my own post
I found a 6-sided wood box at the thrift store and bought it planning to make it into a chocolate frog box. It had a birdhouse and flowers painted on the top. I painted the outside a pretty metalic blue and the inside a bright yellow (I removed the hinges and latch before painting). I studied pictures of the real chocolate frog boxes and then put my gold paint pen to work!
That was a lot of work and hard to not smudge it. But the hardest part was the wording on the top, I re-did it several times to get it even and centered.
Next I made a chocolate frog out of brown fabric.
He is stuffed with fiber-fill and plastic beads so he is a little floppy. I added brown felt spots on his back and button eyes.
I need to find another box like that so I can make one for myself too!
