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?
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
- Glama Natural PASTEL PINK Translucent Vellum
- 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
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!
