Freaky Friday Coffin Card Ideas. Welcome back to another Freaky Friday project and today I have a coffin card for you, suitably covered in cobwebs and aged for extra fright value.
I have made 2 versions of the card, one using dies and one using punches, so this should be a project for both Avid and Casual Crafters. It is worth remembering that you can often switch out dies and punches, so don’t think you can’t make a project because you don’t have the exact item, have a look at what you have and see if you can adapt it. Now, don’t get me wrong, if you want everything (and I definitely do!) then by all means place an order in my Online Store to get any missing items.
In today’s video I have explained how to cut a basic top fold card to make the coffin shape. I would stress that for this one I have not included measurements that are specific to North American Letter card as I know that is shorter and fatter, so the measurements I have used would not give the same effect.
I love ageing Halloween projects with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. It gives such a great subtle effect, just right for these coffins. And the Silver Thread is a great addition to any project with cobwebs. Take a look at today’s video to see how I put the punch project together.

For International A4 Card
Standard A6 Top Fold Cardbase. Find the centre of the top fold and then measure 1-1/4″ (3cm) to each side of that point, mark with a pencil. Measure from the top fold down both sides to the 2″ (5cm) point. Join this point with the mark on the fold, and trim. Find the centre of the bottom of the card and measure 1-1/4″ (3cm) to each point (as you did with the top). Join this point to the mark on the side and trim.
Paper Mat – use your card as a template and draw around it on Designer Series Paper. Cut this out roughly and then trim inside the drawn lines by 1/8″ (0.25cm)
