Day 4 of the Halloween treats from our Stampin’ Sisters Holiday Hoopla Swap all feature the Coffin Treat Boxes. The coffins measure 2-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ x 1-1/4″ and come 12 to a package. They go together very easily and are food safe so they can be filled with wrapped treats or baked goods.
I’ve admired these projects over and over again, and with that sometimes the creators name comes off. That’s what happened with this one and I don’t remember who made it, but I love it! It’s hard to tell in the photo, but there is a window in the coffin lid so you can see a face inside the box! The box is filled with 3 mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, which have a circle cut out from the Monster Bash designer Series Paper attached to them. The top Peanut Better Kiss is attached to the inside of the box with a Stampin’ Dimensional, so that it stays in place and can be viewed when the lid is closed. How clever! The lid was also run through the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder before it was assembled; it adds great texture to the packaging.
Unfortunately, there’s no name on the second Coffin Treat Box either. Monster Bash DSP was added to the lid of the box and stamped images from Wonderfully Wicked and The Raven stamp sets were cut out by hand and added to the Very clever idea to have the Raven standing on the coffin.
Lisa Lange created the last Coffin Treat Box and this one has a real trick inside! Silver Shimmery Ink was rubbed over the coffin lid to add a little eeriness to the it. The sentiment comes from the Boo to You stamp set and once again those “gotta have them” Ornate Frames Dies” were used to add extra interest. The skull and cross bones are from the Monster Bash Embellishments and are the perfect accent piece. Now, are you ready to see what trick is inside?
When you open the Coffin Treat Box, this little guy pops right up out of the box! Lisa stamped, colored and cut out Frankenstein from the Boo to You stamp set and attached a 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Window Sheet to the back with Mini Glue Dots. After filling the box with treats, she just pushed Frankenstein back so he was laying down and closed the lid. Isn’t that a brilliant idea? A Coffin Treat Box filled with a trick and a treat!
I’ve got a few more Halloween Treats to share with you next week so be sure to come back. Here’s the shopping list for today’s projects.
