Coffins.....

Hellloooooo my crafty ghoulies.....

Yeah, I made that word up (ghoulies) hehe.  Here are the coffins I made to hold snacks/candies in for when I hosted Bunco at my house this week.  :)  I really loved how these turned out and they were super easy to make with the Elmhurst Hollow SVG Kit by SVGCuts.com.

Instead of making the moon top, I ran the background base through my cuttlebug using embossing folders (sorry I don't know what it is called, I borrowed from my friend Ann, it is from cuttlebug), it wasn't long enough so I had to do just a little bit at the end.  Then I sponged them on top with a silvery metallic ink.  I also sponged Momento Tuxedo Black ink around all edges.  (I used the paper pack you can get at Walmart for $5, but the inside is white so you have to sponge the edges black)  It did give it that extra little something.  :)

Oh yeah, I did stamp in silver a bat from the stamp set

Be sure to line with wax paper before you put in your
snacks, that way you can use them again and again.  :)

These were a hit.  Somehow I only ended up with one at the end of the game???   LOL!  JK!  Of course I shared with my friends.  :)

OK, stay tuned, there is more....muah ha ha!

Pin It!

  1. I could just kick myself. I saw that embossing folder on clearance and passed it by because I didn't think I would use it. These are adorable in a creepy kinda way!
