Nothings scarier than a monster book of monsters, the only thing this one is missing is a belt. Check out Sisters, What! for more Harry Potter Goodness.

Step 1: Make the Monster Tongue
For the tongue I made it long and skinnier towards the tip. Then I split the tip so it looked snake like. I then took a knife and added a line down the middle of the tongue and some lines along side it to make it hairy like. Also place it in your book in the middle and mold it according. Then cook. After I cooked it, I placed it in the book again. I didn't like the pages sticking up so I cut a spot out of the pages so it fit in nicely. I also added modge podge to the tongue.
Step 2: The Teeth
I kind of just winged this part and started sculpting the clay until it looked like a jaw. Then I added squished onto the red jaw part triangle teeth. The teeth were super easy to make because they needed to look gruesome so they didn't have to be at all perfect. I then placed both set of teeth on the book as I would want them and then molded it in place. Then I cooked it in the oven at that shape. I then add modge podge to give it a shiny finished look.
Step 3: The Rest of the Book
I painted the pages with watered down brown paint. I then cut out some pages areas to make room for the teeth and tongue. I then glued on the teeth and tongue and the glued on the fur. I cut the edges of fur to be jagged. I then glued the eyeballs on.
And you're done!
