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?
Why don’t skeletons go trick-or treating?
Because they don’t have any body to go with.
- 12x12 cardstock in the colors: Bazzill Berry Blush, American Crafts BLACK Glitter
- Encore translucent Vellum in Blush Pink
- Cricut Cutting Machine + Cricut Design Space Box #M44BA4 (Note this file is not longer in Cricut Design Space, but #M399A5 is a similar design or purchase one on Etsy here.)
- Cricut scoring tool
- Craft glue and glue dots
Start off by searching Cricut images for the Box listed above. Size the box to your liking. Create a sentiment for your box. You can use print then cut, or just cut the letters individually with an offset layer.
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, 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.
To finish off the coffin, I printed and cut a sentiment I created that says Trick or Treat Yo'self. You can find lots of fun Halloween sentiments in the Cricut Design Space library. 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!
