My husband's birthday is this Monday.  He loves Ghostbusters (as do I), and he's always wanted a copy of Tobin's Spirit Guide.  As a surprise gift, I recovered one of those cardboard book boxes with leather-like paper and added some scrapbooking charms and some painted accents to make it look like somewhat like the book as it's represented in the cartoon The Real Ghostbusters.

Inside, I added some Ghostbustering goodies. Smiley

A polymer clay Slimer (who was easier to make/bake than I thought he would be - I also modeled him more after the cartoon Slimer than the one in the movies).


All four name tag badges and a logo patch that I found off the internet and a vial of pink slime from Ghostbusters 2 (it's just that noise making Gak-type goo you can buy in the toy section.)


A mini portrait of Vigo the Carpathian (I followed instructions from this blog: http://hookedondecorating.com/how-to-guide-transfer-photos-to-canvas/ to transfer a laser photo to canvas.)


I think he'll like it! Smiley
