Halloween Coffin Treat Box


While rummaging through my stash, I found an old Martha Stewart template to make a coffin for a Halloween treat box, so I decided to make one. It was years ago that I first made one, but it was fun all over again.
I used a SSS stencil along with some Brutus Monroe Glitter paste to put the skeleton on the front. I added a TH witch's hat along with a stamped sentiment and a black "skeleton" sticker on the bottom. The little ghost at the top was cut with an I.O. die and colored with neon Copics


 Here's the side view where I used an older Martha Stewart goo punch to create the edge around the top. The rest of the box was decorated with assorted stickers I've had for years. This little coffin holds quite a bit of candy so I have a special person in mind to receive it for Halloween.


I'm going to enter this into the brand new

Two Old Bats Halloween challenge - Jump Start Halloween

(isn't that the funniest name for a new challenge?) I love it! 😊
