Death by Chocolate Treat Holders

Made another treat holder for chocolate candies for Halloween. I used the Sizzix Coffin Box die for the coffin:

Used gray card stock from Stampin Up for the box. Once that was cut and put together using red sticky tape I sponged gray ink on the edges of the box lid and bottom -- here is a photo to show the side of this treat holder:

Cut out a spider web die for the coffin box front and trimmed it to the size I wanted with scissors. Used a glue pen to put the web on the box lid. Using a punch from the dollar bin I punched out two bugs from black glittered card stock. Put them on the box lid using glue dots. For the ghosts I cut that die out of white glittered card stock and put those on the box lid with glue dots. Used black tulle to tie around the box and tied that in a knot. Trimmed off the ends of the tulle with scissors.

For the "SCREAM" word I cut out the die using orange glittered card stock. Wanted this piece to be more sturdy and wanted it to add dimension to the box lid so I also cut this die out of the opening tab to a kleenex box. That is thinner card board than chip board and the die cut it with no problems. Put the card board word behind the orange glittered word using TomBow glue similar to the other words and shapes I had done for Halloween in an earlier post:

To show the size of this coffin box treat holder here it is with other Halloween treat holders I have recently made:

From left to right:

Ferrero Rocher holder, in the middle the smaller version of the Stampin Up Berry Basket, the right holder is the Curvy Keepsake Box made into a pumpkin that has a spider web/witch hatch with bow. This coffin box is a small treat holder but it holds enough chocolate treats to satisfy a recipient. TFL and YOLO
