Bride of Frankenstein Book Box

I can’t believe I forgot to post this up. Whew, life. Anyways, I was posting stuff up for the Nerd Games and figured it out.
I made this for the Winter Book Swap. It was for KittyKill. We both have a love for classic Hollywood monsters so I decided to run with that. I drew out the Bride reading a book, but I did it on Bristol board and it seemed too thick to adhere to the box. I ended up getting the image copied and used that instead, then I sent her the original separately.
I have to give a shout out to @Bunny1kenobi who told me about the technique of turning a paper bag into faux leather for the spine of the book. I think it made all the difference on this project!
