Keep the creepy crafts a comin’! Today I’ve got a cut file to die for. Make this exquisite coffin box, and lay your Halloween treats to rest in style!
I love making themed treat boxes for holidays! It’s such a nice way to package a little gift and add a handmade touch to a thoughtful surprise. And what better way to wrap up some devilish delights than by placing them inside a coffin?
- Hot Glue
- A Glue Stick
- Bone Folder (optional)
- A Cutting Machine or X-ACTO knife
- My Free Template
How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the coffin box pieces.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
Assembling the Coffin
2. Fold in the side of your coffin, and glue the tabs inside.
Attach the fine, detail pieces near the bottom edges of the coffin. I find that a glue stick is easier when working with really thin elements like these.
Assembling the Lid
3. Fold in thee edge pieces of the lid, and glue the tabs to the inside.
Layer your three topper pieces; then attach them to the coffin lid.
That’s it! Simple, but beautiful.
This coffin would make a great favor box for a Halloween party, or an extra special treat container for a friend.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other Halloween freebies available on my blog!
