VIDEO | Home Sweet Home Coffin Treat Box for Halloween

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sarah Lancaster Coffin Treat Box from Home Sweet Home die

Hello my Stampin' friends.

So I have seen a few of these around, on Pinterest and my Facebook group and with Halloween approaching (eek !!) I thought I would share a video tutorial on how to alter your Home Sweet Home thinlits dies to make a little coffin shaped treat box.

I have also included a photo of my template that I highlight in the video.

You can decorate your treat box in various ways, here I use the Hardwood stamp set to create a faux wooden top and the banner and ghost die from the Sweet Home bundle.

As mentioned in the video I initially saw this alteration by Martha Inchley and was so amazed that I had to have a go at creating my own. To my knowledge Martha hasn't done a tutorial but you can see her *Dracula's Home* on her blog Inch of Creativity.

You can keep your little coffin closed with some of the fabulous Halloween Night bakers twine.

Here is my video, I hope you find it useful -

Here is a photo of my templates. The red lines are cut lines, the blue lines are new score lines and the green hashed area is where you place your adhesive. You will create a cut line between the two diagonal lines on the lid that is 2 13/16 inches (7,2 cm) away from the bottom. The new fold line runs ¾ inch (2 cm) parallel to the existing fold line below it -

I hope you found that useful and you are inspired to make your own little treat boxes. You can also add a faux tea light instead of candies and change up the idea into a Halloween party table decoration.
