Anyway, this week I am sharing a creepy coffin I made for a one-on-one swap...I actually made 2 of these identical (keeping one for myself)
These are made out of Masonite, and you have to put them together, I got them from RETRO CAFE. The kit comes so that you can make 2 not-so-deep coffins that sit on top of each other, loose with a lid, or you can put the pieces together so that you get one deeper coffin and lid, which is what I did, but I hinged the lid with electric tape and glue (for extra hold)
I put the bottom pieces together, and asked the hubby to use the scroll saw to make a cross in the lid, he used the drill press instead, LOL! but it worked. then I hinged it (as stated above)
I used a large web stamp (STAMPIN' UP) and stamped it with VERSAMARK embossing ink, then used Kaleidoscope Embossing powder(by STAMPENDOUS), then I moved into the inside. but you can see the last steps which were to put the spider on the web, and a clay word with metallic pigment powder on it..."Spooky". I used a silver paint pen around the cross, and all around the sides of the coffin.
Here on the inside I lined it with red fleece, and used one of the "grow-your-own" skeletons...but I didn't grow it at all. I wanted to use a vampire but they only made witches and skeletons. I glued the skeleton down, I then cut another piece of the fleece to be a cover.
On the inside of the lid i glued on a metal skull and Cross-bones charm, a pair of tiny cat eyes in green, and then spread out some of that stretchy web stuff.
Next week I'll try to remember to share pictures of the one I rec'd. The gal used metal on her's...VERY COOL looking.
I hope you like my little creepy coffin!
