Draw black lines on the top going down the slightly open side of the box. 4. Paint the two sides gold. 5. Fold the vinyl over and hot glue it to the other three sides of the box. 6. Stick letters on the cover. The book can read whatever you want it to. Worm: 1. Make a very long fleece "U" and a cut out a circle for the face. 2.

Ahh, Ratatouille! One of the best movies in the whole world, and who couldn't love rats after seeing how talented and cute they turn out to be?! I just made these totally simple rat ears and beret for a Prop. 37 commercial. Thought they would be a great last minute Halloween costume for any of you out there who might have a penchant for the gutter life.
This project I made to be UCLA Family Commons starfish mascot. It could also be a great big giant pillow for a kids room or a play room if you leave out the hole for the face and don't double the foam.
