Hello everyone and welcome to creepy Saturday... hehe... well, I have a Halloween project to share with you today... a tutorial how to create this little coffin you can see below. The newest images just released are just perfect for it.
Here we go... first a list what you need for this project:
- stamp (I used Maya as Frankenstein's Wife)
- colouring medium (I used Distress Inks)
- Aquarell paper (I used Montval aquarell paper)
- craft cardstock
- acryl paint
- embellishment and dies as you wish
Below you have the template to print and cut out with the measures. Of course you also can make it any bigger or smaller.
I recommend to use some craft carstock of at least 300 gram to give the coffin a good stability. Cut out the whole lines and score the spotted lines. Don't forget to cut the lines where the lashes have to go in for closing the coffin.
Afterwards I gave the cuffin a used look with dab some dark brown acrylic paint onto the cardstock. I distressed the edges with a brilliance pearlescent ink pad. Afterdrying I glued the coffin together.
And now the coffin is ready to decorate as you wish.
A close up of the image...
I put a spiderweb over some flowers.
Here you can see how it looks like from the side... of course to add a spider is a must :o). You can get them in the gorgeous Halloween charm box.
And here you can see how I made the inside... I decided to create a deluxe model with red snake leather inside... he he he :o))
Well, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration to create the perfect Halloween decoration. If you have made a coffin by yourself please leave a message here. I would love to visit you and see what you made. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Have a wonderful day now!
