31 Days of Halloween - Day 13

Hello everyone, welcome to my contribution to the Smeared Ink 31 days of Halloween Blog Challenge.  If you're playing along, then you’ve arrived from Sarah’s blog - but you can find the blog roll over there on the right.

I'm simul-blogging with my un-evil twin over on Tuppence Coloured today,  because it's the day I share a video tutorial.  Today I've been making these coffin boxes - they're a variation of the self-closing box that's been so popular lately.



Here are the measurements -

Here's the video - (with a personal appearance from Mysti the cat at the end!)



So now, on to Lisa F’s blog to continue the hop - and I'll see you tomorrow!

I'm so excited there's a template and video, and a guest appearance, wow this blog post has it all! I love your caskets <3

LOVE that box! Thanks so much for the template and fab video. That wood grain stamp is amazing. I thought you'd started with DP. Thanks for all the tips, too. I did notice that there might be an error on the template. The last measurement along the bottom, I think, should be 5 1/4", rather than 4 1/4". That's what you said in the video, and I think it would be consistent with the other side. xxD

Thanks for the kind comments everyone!
Claire Perkins to answer your question - I measured about 3/4 of an inch in from the edge on either side. Donna Mundinger - you're right, thank you! I'll correct the diagram! xxx Keren

I made some of these coffin boxes a few years ago.
I think I had to trace them out and then cut them.
Must have been before the cutting machines became so popular.
the boxes are always a hit with the recipients.
thanks for sharing.
