I made this for my husband for Christmas. He used to be a butcher many moons ago and is still smitten with meaty things. He smokes his own bacon, makes his own sausage and even dries his own meats. Basically, he feels the same way about meat as I feel about crafting Tongue



The outside measurements are around 7.5" x 5.8". It's pretty dang small and the inside space was even teenier so it was a chore to arrange all the inside bits and still have it close up.
Here's a business card and pencil for size reference...



I made all of the meats with polymer clay. I'm usually pretty relaxed with the realism in my work so this level of non-imaginaryness was a change for me.



And that's that! Now to wrap this sucker up and hide it before he peeks... he is a total peeker. Seriously, worse than my kid  Tongue

It's amazing!
I'm not that fond of (especially raw) meat, but you did an awesome job on all of those details. It's just perfect.
