Happy Friday!  Hope you’ve been having a good week.  Fall temperatures finally arrived in Georgia so it sets the mood for Fall festivities.  Today’s project, Halloween Coffin Treat Boxes, is perfect for Fall craft fairs or for giving treats to friendly Gremlins.  The food safe Coffin Boxes in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog are easy to assemble.  A variety of products in the Monster Bash Suite decorate the Halloween Coffin Treat Boxes shown below.  

Coffin Treat Holders

Details for the Coffin Halloween Treat Holder on the Left:

First, texture emboss the lid using the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder before assembling.  Next, assemble the coffin top and bottom using a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape or Mulitpurpose Liquid Adhesive.  To add definition to the top, swipe the lid across the raised embossed areas using the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  Stamp the mummy and the sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  After stamping, cut using the coordinating Ornate Frames Dies.  Also, use the dies to cut a scroll frame from Crushed Curry cardstock.  To color the mummy, use either the Crumb Cake Stampin Write Marker or Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  For the border, use the Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere the mummy piece to the Crushed Curry frame using Snail Adhesive.  With stampin’ dimensionals, add the piece to the top of the coffin.  Attach sentiment and bow.  Almost forgot… for a fun touch, add Assorted Googly Eyes!

Details for the Coffin Halloween Treat Holder on the Right:

Start by assembling the coffin.  Turn the coffin lid upside down and place onto the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  Then, trace around the lid.  Use paper snips to cut the lid around the traced area.  After cutting, sponge the edges of the designer series paper using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Add to the coffin lid using multipurpose liquid adhesive.  TIP:  the multipurpose liquid adhesive allows time to make placement adjustments.  With the Ornate Frames Dies, cut a large scroll from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and a smaller scroll using Basic Black cardstock.  Layer the scrolls.  Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut with the coordinating die.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the layered scrolls.  Embellish with Basic Rhinestone Jewels and a Black Glitter Organdy ribbon bow.  Add to the coffin lid.
