Halloween Coffin Treat Box he

coffin box

Here in the UK, Halloween isn’t a big thing, but has become more popular in recent years with the children going out to Trick or Treat. This project is what the children coming to my door this year will receive. I think they are so cute 🙂

coffin box mask

Place the mask over the top of the coffin lid (you may find it easier to tape it down so it doesn’t move).

 

Tap the versamark all over the mask, making sure the lid is fully covered in the pattern.
coffin box emboss
Remove the mask and cover the pattern in clear embossing powder.
Set it with the heat tool.
coffin box flat
Fold and burnish all the scorelines on the box and lid.
coffin box assembled
Assemble the box and lid. I used liquid glue, but you may prefer to use tear and tape.
coffin box filled
Fill with treats. I bought bubbles, jelly body parts and chocolate eye balls from the pound shop.
coffin box
Punch out the label in some black cardstock and emboss Happy Halloween in silver embossing powder.
Pierce a hole through the label and tie on some silver metallic thread.
Tie the ribbon round the box and attach the label to the ribbon.
For those of you who do celebrate Halloween, we have some great sets in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue along with the wonderful Christmas products If you do not have a copy of the catalogue, contact me and I would be happy to send one out to you.
