Mario Mystery Box Inception

Introduction: Mario Mystery Box Inception

These are the steps to making a Mario Mystery Inception Box. (Box within a box)

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

You will need these materials to make this project.

- Toysmith Illusion Coin Bank

- Yellow and white paint

- White masking tape

- White foam board

- White paper

- Screwdriver

- Scotch tape (clear)

The coin bank comes with other materials you will need.

Step 2: Step 2: Disassembly

To disassemble the coin bank, remove the lid carefully so none of the hinges break off. Unscrew the mirror with the screwdriver. Be extremely cautious when taking the mirror out because if the mirror breaks you have to start from scratch. Make sure you don't lose the screws either or you'll have award time finding new ones that fit.

Step 3: Step 3: Inside

On the inside there is a piece or paper with something printed on it, take that flip it and fold it backwards and paint it blue (or any other color if you'd like). Cut two pieces of foam board 1 inch x 1 inch. Paint the yellow and put a white question mark in the center of the one you will put in front of the mirror.

Step 4: Step 4: Outside

Cover the coin bank in paper and white masking tape so it can be painted on. Make sure to leave a hole in the top to actually put coins in. When your done covering it, paint it all yellow, and after put question marks in the center of each surface.

Step 5: Step 5: Assembly

Put the two screws inside the double foam board pieces and screw onto mirror. Place mirror inside the box and finally put the top back on.
