Well, I was inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350056.0, so I thought I'd have a go, and make one myself.
I found a knackered old Cluedo on a charity stall for 50p, so I went for it, and six rolls of electrical tape later, here you go! It's totally wonky, and not flush, but it was my first go, so I'm happy enough for now - plus its one ticked off the 50 projects for 2010 Craftalong! Yay!!


Finished item.Plus an old PG tips box I covered with an old OS map.

In progress...



Another completed angle:


I hope you like - I know it's a bit pants, but it's my first go!!

Thanx

I think it's cute. Are the handles the game pieces? I've tried to do something similar with a cardboard box and after that I'm amazed when people can get their projects so straight.

It looks really sweet even if it is a bit wonky! I'd like to try it with old record cases but I'll probably have the same balance problem!

aww - thank u!

yes, lady4feet - they're the game pieces! I wanted to use the murder weapons, but they were to small, and I lost patience in the end up lol!!

I've kept them, though to use for another project.

The 'wonkiness' seems to fit in with everything around it now, so that's not too bad at all (if slightly worrying!)  Grin
