Coffin Box Trio with Susan

Hello crafty friends!  Is it Halloween yet?  Are you done with all these spookies and skellies?  Hopefully not since I have a little more for you today.  If you couldn't tell by now, spooky-themed projects are my year-'round fun.

Today I have a trio of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts miniature coffin boxes.  Finished, they are 4 1/4" x 2 1/8" x 1 1/4", with two coffins per package.

The first thing was to bend up the edges, then glue.  I did one tab at a time and used clothes pins to secure while the glue worked it's magic.

 Next, I edged the coffin with brown ink and filled in the scored indentation with a brown pen.  I traced the top, bottom, and sides onto scrap paper, cut them out, and inked the edges.

You can use any glue for this step, but the trick I can share is to go slowly and glue one section at a time.  Make sure the paper is staying straight since it can be difficult (impossible!) to fix once you get around to the end.  I know this from experience... which is why there are only 3 coffin boxes out of 4.  ::grin::

Since I succeeded on the bat box, I continued with the other boxes.

These are fun!  I'm not sure how I'll use them yet.  For now they are a resting place for George to supervise my work.  

This design is also available in 7 1/2" long coffin box and a 6" long coffin box.  Happy crafting!
