Coffin Treat Box

Halloween is only a month away, and I have been working on some spooky projects!  Today I am sharing a coffin treat box that I made using files from the Happy Haunt Halloween Party Kit from SVG Attic.
I think this turned out so cute!  Okay, not really cute, well maybe in a spooky kind of way LOL!  All of the patterned papers are from DCWV's Bewitched stack.
For embellishments on top of the coffin, I used a little burlap, twine and buttons.  
For the inside treat I went old school...I made these treats when I was young!  They are a sucker wrapped in tissue paper.  I added googly eyes, drew on the mouth and tied the bow tie with more twine.
Here is a closeup of the tombstone that is also included in the SVG kit.  It made the perfect addition to the tombstone.  How awesome would these be as place cards for a Halloween party?!  Or it could be used as a greeting card because the back opens up just like a card.  The possibilities with this set are endless!

If you are stumped with what to make for Halloween, check out SVG Attic's Halloween section.  I am sure you will be inspired by something there!  Plus their files are 50% off for a limited time, so it is the perfect time to pick some up.  Their newest kit, Autumn Splendor compliments this set perfectly!
To get this set free, add a minimum of $9.98 to your shopping cart, then add this new set to your cart and use the coupon code FREE on step two of the checkout process!
