Freaky Friday – Coffin for Dracula. I have a really fun project for you today, inspired by a photo I saw, I think from the Incentive Trip, but as I was not on the Incentive Trip (boo hoo!!) I honestly can’t remember where I saw it. Anyway, it is a fun coffin, which feels like a very strange thing to write.
I have wanted to make this project for a few weeks, but needed the right thing to put inside. Finally I found ‘Spooky Milk Chocolate Hollow Shapes‘ in my local Sainsbury’s. These are covered in foil with all sorts of characters on, including Dracula, so I finally had the perfect filling for my coffin.
For a change, I have used the Tags, Tags, Tags Bundle, simply because ‘It’s All about the Candy’ seemed the perfect wording to put on the outside of the coffin. I stamped with Versamark and Shimmery Black Embossing Powder on Real Red card.
I cut Designer Series Paper, from the Monster Bash pack, for the top of the coffin and edged it with Real Red Ink, adding the tag and an enamel shape. The edge of the lid is covered with the Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon, stuck on with Tear n Tape.
Now the outside is all very well, but it is the inside that is the star of this project, and what I had spotted in a picture ‘somewhere’. The inside is lined with the Real Red Ruched Ribbon. Again, I have used Tear n Tape to stick it in place and a mini glue dot to stick Dracula in place.
So, what do you think? Is it a winner? Have I converted you to Halloween?
