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.)

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!
