" I am a dreamer. I am , indeed, a practical dreamer. My dreams are not airy nothings. I want to convert my dreams into realities, as far as possible. "

   I have been working on making my Halloween coffins for the upcoming sale in Berwick. (See previous post.) I used Martha Stewart's template from her website. Here it the link, if you would like to make some of your own. It is really not very hard to do.Martha has a video to help you with the construction.

Halloween treat boxes

   It is best to use double sided paper with black being the other side, but I didn't have any so I just glued a sheet the size of the template to the other side.
   Before I constructed my box I added the details you see in the picture. Using Stampin Up's white ink I stamped the cover with my Inkadinkadoo clear stamps.   Great fun!!.
   Next I made these flowers from my punches with silver sparkly paper and added them to the coffins. 
   My spider is from Sizzix. I added the white eyes with my white enamel accents. I picked up these cute skeletons from The Dollar Store. I plan on putting one in each coffin with some candy for the upcoming sale. I think kids will love these.. Thanks, Martha!
