The Book of Mudora from A Link to the Past Gets Transformed into a Decorative Box in DIY Crafting Video
Posted on October 21 2017 by Kristen G. Rosario
There’s an in-game item within A Link to the Past that tells of the lore and stories of the land of Hyrule; the Book of Mudora. While this item doesn’t give us everything in terms of Hylian backstory, the book does help translate ancient scripture in certain areas. It even helps Link obtain unique items like the Ether and Bombos Medallions. The version of the Book of Mudora we’re looking at today doesn’t do any of that, but still remains a keepsake for your Zelda collection.
The crafting video we’re looking at today comes to us from StellarNan, an up-and-coming crafter on YouTube. From now and for the rest of the year, she’ll be working on creating crafts based on the 21 games included in the SNES Classic Edition. For her newest episode, StellarNan shows the viewer just how to make a decorative box version of the Book of Mudora from A Link to the Past.
In order to create your very own stylish Zelda box, you’ll need the following:
- Darcie Paper Mache Book Box
- Pattern Template for the Book of Mudora (which is available for free)
- X-Acto Knife
- Self-Healing Cutting Mat
- Sponge Brush
- Small Detailing Brush
- White, Green, Gold, and Yellow Acrylic Paint
- Mod Podge
- Sealing Spray
- Rhinestone Hearts and E6000 Glue (Optional)
It may seem like a lot, but gathering all of the necessary items and watching StellarNan’s instructional video will help you create something that’s really cool. This may look challenging, but it is a very creative way to build the one-and-only Book of Mudora. I think it comes out detailed and is something useful for keeping your smaller Zelda knick-knacks in.
Other games from the SNES Classic Edition that StellarNan has already tackled includes craft for Super Mario World, F-Zero, Super Castlevania IV, Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, and Contra III: The Alien Wars. Here’s hoping she does some more Zelda stuff sooner, rather than later.
