Coffin Treat Box Cards

While I was browsing through my fall Magnolia Ink magazine I seen a picture of the cutest treat box in the shape of  an old fashioned coffin.  I was intrigued right away and new I wanted to try making one.  So GOOGLE being my favorite search engine I started searching.  Lucky me!  I didn't have to search for long.....Martha Stewart to my rescue (isn't she great).  My mind started swirling with ideas for these Ghoulish treat boxes and Dracula Edwin from the Magnolia collection available from Diana's store Magnolia-licious.  He isn't in stock right now but if you contact Diana and let her know you are interested in ordering him she will do her best to get him for you.   If you would like to try making these ghoulish coffin treat boxes your self click HERE to go to Martha Stewart's site.  The one change I made to my treat boxes is that I lined only the tops and bottoms of the coffin not the sides.  They are really easy to make.

This is going to be a bit of a long post so grab a cup of Java and Enjoy!



Now a look at each one individually

Inside look at both bottom and lid of Coffin






Dracula Edwin is colored with Copic Markers, sorry I forgot to write down the colors I used.  The flowers I used were from Hydrangea's that I picked up on sale at JYSK and the roses were a sale find at Michael's last month. All the flowers are sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  Bat stickers are from Martha Stewart.  All other embellishments are from my stash.

Don't you love duel purpose a treat box and card in one.  Now to get some treats to fill the Coffins up.  I do like them all but the purple one is my favorite.  Would love to know what you think.
