Little Bits Book Of Monsters

by Prichard10

Published on January 8, 2017

Using Gismos and Gadgets second edition, I constructed the monster book of monsters from Harry Potter. A servo enables it's jaws to move up and down, motors and Bluetooth Bits make it controlable using drive mode in the littleBits app on my iphone.

How To Make It

1

Cut a box to look like a book and put in the circuits Using an old box, I created the monsterbook structure. Then, I attached all the circuits with a mounting board and electrical tape.

Print out the title for the monsterbook I was able to quickly print this image off of google, then I proceeded to laminate it with postage tape, and cut it out.

Craft a set of teeth for your monsterbook out of polymer clay Using red and cream color polymer clay I made a set of teeth and baked them for 20 minutes.

Make strips of paper to look like the sides of a book I took regular copy paper and soaked it in coffee. After letting it dry, I cut it into strips and drew thin lines on it so it would resemble the outside of a book.

5

Add fur, marbles for the eyes, and everything else you created Using strong glue, I added the fur and all of the other components to my Little Bits Book of Monsters. (tip: make sure the upper gum juts out enough so it won't get stuck on the inside of the box)

Hook up the bluetooth bits to drive mode and have fun! I enjoyed spooking my family out and recreating scenes from The Prisoner of Askaban.
