Treat Yo’ Self Pink Halloween Coffin For Candy

Before we get started making this pink halloween coffin for candy, let me tickle your funny bone.  

What do you call a skeleton that refuses to help you clean?
Lazy bones. 

Why don’t skeletons go trick-or treating?
Because they don’t have any body to go with.

Supplies you’ll need:  Start off by searching Cricut images for the Box listed above.  Then upload the free SVG linked above into Design Space.  Size the box and SVG to your liking. 
For reference, here are the size dimensions used for the coffin:

I decided to make a larger coffin, so it has plenty of room to hold lots of treats.

Once you’ve cut all of the pieces, and printed and cut the free SVG, it’s time to start assembling everything.

One thing to note, I was a little concerned about how well the vellum would hold up with this project since it’s a very thin material.  But I couldn’t be happier with how crisp the folds and edges turned out.  It really does make the perfect top for this cute project.

I usually like to add an elevated element to a project like this, so I used glue dots underneath the SVG quote.

I would love to see how yours turned out, how you decorated the lid, and what candy you decided to fill it with!
