Coffin Box

Several of you inquired about what I worked on this weekend, your wait is over my stamping friends. Because sales were brisk, I only had time for this box and some small cards that I will share later. The coffin box comes in a kit, it includes the box with the lid, instructions for folding and 3 cards/inserts. I sewed my inserts together (thanks Angela) and decorated them as a mini scrapbook, but you could easily make cards or some other creative thing. No paper or embellishments are included, but I did use the Hallowimsy line from Imaginisce and a couple misc. stamps from My Favorite Things. I am not going to go into a lot of detail about the specifics of how I decorated the box, because I would love to see what you do if you get it. We have one left for sale at Paper Addiction, but are expecting some more. Please let me know if you are seriously interested in getting one or more so we can hook you up! (Retail is $7, but our opening special price will be $5, whoohoo!) Please let me know if you have any questions about how I did any portion of the box or book.

More inside pages...

I just embossed the back of the book with the skull Snag Em' stamp and clear ep for a little extra somethin', somethin'

Please, just ask if you have any questions. Thanks for stamping by!

Hi Laura,
It's Susan the pedicurist from the crop this past weekend. Jillian was putting together her coffin book and we can't figure out how to bind the the book together. I can't see staples and I'm not sure what adhesive you used. Can you e-mail me and let me know. Thank you so much. The mini book is adorable.
