A box based on the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman.
This is my second matchbox for the International Championship League of Matchbox Stuffers. As a Neil Gaiman fan, this seemed the perfect theme. It's based on the book, I haven't seen the film yet, it doesn't open here until May.
I liked the Pandora box, her curiosity also got her into trouble.
1. A Nemi cartoon mentioning Neil Gaiman (and Terry Pratchett, two of my favourite writers). You can read it on the large size.
2. A recipe for roast chicken from the newspaper.
“Coraline’s father stopped working and made them all dinner.
Coraline was disgusted, “Daddy,” she said, “you’ve made a recipe again.””
3. MIST written on a piece of paper.
“Coraline tried drawing the mist. After ten minutes of drawing she still had a white sheet of paper with
M I S T
written on it in one corner in slightly wiggly letters.”
4. A taper representing the candle Coraline uses.
“She lit the candlewick with a match and watched it sputter and light”
(Hey, I could have left a matchstick in there!)
5. The smallest of a set of Russian dolls, representing Coraline.
6. A red bead that looks a bit like coral. Coralline in fact.
7. Felix the Cat pendant, for the black cat.
“There was also a haughty black cat, who sat on walls and tree stumps and watched her but slipped away if ever she went over to try to play with it.”
8. A stone bead representing a stone with a hole.
"Miss Spink...passed Coraline the stone with a hole in it.
"What's it for?" asked Coraline. The hole went all the way through the middle of the stone. She held it up to the window and looked through it.
"It might help," said Miss Spink. "They're good for bad things, sometimes."
9. A bee decorated hair clip representing wasps and hair clips. (You don’t get many wasp shaped hairclips).
Coraline’s father - “ “The air was alive with yellow wasps. We must have stepped on a wasps’ nest in a rotten branch as we walked. And while I was running up the hill, my dad stayed and got stung, to give me time to run away.” ”
And her mother - “ “Yes, dear. Now, I think you could do with some more hair clips, don’t you?” ”
10. A piece of blue and white pottery, one of 153 blue things. It has a picture of a tree on it, for the garden.
“She counted everything blue (153)”
“Where Coraline came from, once you were through the patch of trees, you saw nothing but the meadow and the old tennis court. In this place, the woods went on farther, the trees becoming cruder and less treelike the farther you went.”
11. An apple charm.
“She put an apple into each pocket.”
12. A little china mouse.
“He told Coraline that he was training a mouse circus. He wouldn’t let anyone see it.”
13. A metal trumpet charm, for the mouse orchestra.
“She fancied she could hear sweet music on the night air: the kind of music that can only be played on the tiniest silver trombones and trumpets…”
14. An American stamp for the Year of the Rat.
“ “Hello,” said Coraline. “Are you the rats?”
They came out from under the bed, blinking their eyes in the light. They had short, soot-black fur, little red eyes, pink paws like tiny hands, and pink, hairless tails like long, smooth worms.”
15. A small chard of mirror.
“Her mother breathed on the inside of the mirror glass, and quickly, before the fog faded, she wrote
16. A tiny glass marble.
“The gray glass marble from the bottom of the toy box sat, dully, in the pink palm of her hand.”
17. A light bulb from a torch. OK I know that’s stretching things, but you try and find a snow globe that small.
“It was a snow globe, with two little people in it. Coraline shook it and set the snow flying, white snow that glittered as it tumbled through the water.”
18. A Scottie dog on a cufflink.
“They were both old and round, and they lived in their flat with a number of ageing Highland terriers who had names like Hamish and Andrew and Jock.”
19. Half a ticket
“The dog put the flashlight down on the floor, and looked up at her. “Right. Let’s see your ticket,” he said gruffly.”
20. A pair of buttons, ready to sew on.
“And then she turned around. Her eyes were big black buttons.”
21. A rubbery spider charm.
“A spider scuttled over the back of her hand and she choked back a shriek.”
22. A metal black beetle charm.
“The bag was half filled with large shiny black beetles, crawling over each other in their efforts to get out of the bag.”
23. A threaded needle. The paper it’s on has a spider web pattern.
“…on the kitchen table was a spool of black cotton, and a long silver needle,”
24. A fairy charm.
“Coraline could have sworn that the girl had two wings – like dusty silver butterfly wings, not bird wings – coming out of her back.”
25. An ankh. Although Death, from Sandman, doesn’t make an appearance, you can feel her presence.
“The three of them came to small wooden bridge over a stream. They stopped there and turned and waved,
