Stumbled upon this project online and HAD to give it a try. There was a tutorial for sale for $5 but I just kinda did it my own way and used their photo as inspiration. I used one of those cheapie wooden trinket boxes ($1.00 at AcMoore) and covered it. They eye is a flat bottomed glass aquarium stone (I drew an eye with sharpie on an index card and cut it to fit, glued it to the bottom). I used e-6000 to glue the paper to the glass, but it doesn't like the heat, and looks "cracked" under the glass, but other than that, I think it came out pretty darn good. I am going to give it to my son for his birthday, he had a bit of a dragon fetish.

This is awesome! Personally, I like the "cracked" look of the eye. I think you did an amazing job!

That is fabulous! 
(Though I have to admit, at first glance at the tumbnail I thought someone had made an amazing dragon's eye cake.  It wouldn't surprise me here on Craftster.  Really I'm just hungry.)

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I like the crackle look eye too. 

I thought, before seeing the post title, that someone had made a Starro the Conquerer something.  That's the Comic Fan-Girl in me.  Starro is a classic Justice League of America 'villian.'

I think the crackle eye makes it look very realistic. Bet your son will love it!
