Googly Coffin

  I decided I had better get this project posted before Halloween has come and gone!  I saw this adorable coffin (yes coffins can be adorable if they are made from paper!) on Splitcoaststampers so I followed the creators links and she has shared a quick tutorial on how to make these fun Halloween treats.  Check out Selene Kempton's blog Stamp 4 Fun to see the how to.  I shared this with my stamp club and they all thought it was adorable too.  Little KitKat or Hershey bars fit perfectly!

  After we put together the coffins using the Petal cone die we dragged the edges across the Illuminate ink pad.  Then we tied a bit of black 1/8" taffeta ribbon around it and knotted it on the side.  The large scalloped circle is punched from Howlstooth & Scarringbone DSP.  The Googly Ghouls were stamped in Stazon onto Very Vanilla and punched out with the wide oval punch.  For the witch and Frankenstein we used a blender pen and Certainly Celery ink pad to color in their faces.  And last are the googlie eyes which certainly add a lot of fun to these characters!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
