The Mystery Box.

The Mystery Box.


Here is something that I made with paper. It starts up by being a little box with a skirt on the front. But then, as you start opening the box, a mysterious woman with a cat appears. She is holding a big hair comb. Why is the woman there? What is she going to do with the comb? Why is the cat smiling? …

I made this just for fun. ┬áBecause sometimes I need to drop all the “serious” things that I am doing, so I can get lost in the silly side of my brain icon smile The Mystery Box.
