This project has a little bit of nostalgia for me. In my high school (forever ago!) student groups would sell “PumpkinGrams.” They were little scraps of halloween themed paper taped to a candy bar, sold for a dollar and delivered to whichever friends you chose. I remember being so excited during 6th hour on the last school day before Halloween, waiting to see who might have sent me one.
I might not get PumpkinGrams anymore, but I still love a cute Halloween Themed treat! So, when I saw this super cute Coffin box at Mel Stampz, I fell in love. And, in my usual fashion, I took it all one step further with a digital version, complete with an aged look and a Fleur de lys.
How to make it:
- Download and print the template on card stock. You will need to print on both sides of the paper. (As every printer is different, I recommend drawing (side 1 ^) and (side 2 ^) on each side of a test sheet and running it through once on normal paper. This will help you to discern how to print two-sided on your particular printer.)
- Cut out the template, and score on the dotted lines.
- Fold the dotted lines. Glue tabs together so that A touches A and B touches B etc. Allow to dry.
- That’s it! 4 steps! I filled mine with luscious Lindt super dark chocolates, but you can tuck whatever suits your fancy inside. Imagine a classroom treat graveyard with dozens of filled little coffins!
