Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • first traced around a coffin box onto two pieces of Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP), then…
  • cut both pieces along the traced lines

Stamped with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set:

  • sentiment in Whisper White Craft Ink onto a scrap of Basic Gray card stock (CS)
  • heat set the ink using a Heat Tool

Cut using the Ornate Frames Dies:

  • sentiment
  • ornate frame from a scrap of Basic Gray CS

Cut using the Wicked Dies:

  • 3 spiders from a scrap of Black Foil Sheet

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • hole in the die cut ornate frame, and in the top of the coffin box, using the same small die
  • vampire from the Monster Bash DSP, and a scrap of clear Window Sheet, using the same larger die

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box and lid with a Bone Folder
  • clear circle adhered onto the inside of the lid, lining the hole, using Tear & Tape
  • vampire adhered onto the clear circle using Tear & Tape, so he shows through the window in the lid
  • box and lid folded and glued into shape

  • ornate frame glued onto the top of the lid, around the window
  • sentiment glued onto the top of the lid
  • 3 spiders adhered onto the top of the lid using Mini Glue Dots
  • 2 Red Rhinestones applied onto each spider, to resemble a Black Widow’s hourglass pattern (Yes, I know it’s actually on the bottom of a real spider and not up on its back, but I took a little artistic license.)

Harvest Hellos for ICS 09-2019

It’s time for the ICS 09-2019 Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Fabulous Fall. What could be more fabulous that going back to school? I know, not everyone feels that way, but when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get back to see my friends. I enjoyed school. And the beginning of the school year was special because I got a new notebook, paper, pencils, etc. and some new school clothes. My project for today is a welcome back to school card. I used the Harvest Hellos bundle (Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch.) I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock for the apple. The star background is from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. All the new holiday products are now available to order!
