"Professor McGonagall watched them turn a mouse into a snuffbox - points were given for how pretty the snuffbox was, but taken away if it had whiskers."
—The Transfiguration final exam[src]

Mice to Snuffboxes is a Transforming spell that Transfigures mice into snuffboxes. The counter-spell for this is the Snufflifors Spell.
