With Halloween just around the corner, a pop up Dracula came to mind for my projects using pine scales well soaked in salt water. I had a large one that really responded well to changes in humidity, so with tongue depressors in hand I set out to build his coffin first. What did one casket say to the other?... Is that you coffin? See my previous Instructable on the Robot Weather Toy.

This is an image of Vlad Dracula that I wanted to shoot for in a comical way, even though the original was not funny
