A haunting home sweet home

My brothers and I liked all things scary when we were kids.  Our favorite was pulling out the sleeper bed in our living room, making real popcorn, and watching scary movies.  And, we watched a lot of corny vampires over the years.  Though, My Best Friend is a Vampire is the one that pops instantly in the head.  So the first time I pulled out the home sweet home framelit my mind instantly saw a coffin.  I think it would be the perfect treat holder for kids to bring into school, or if you are really into Halloween to make as your treats for handing out.

Isn’t it cute!  I think it would look great with some orange foil Hersey kisses or candy corn.  I put the window sheet insert in to keep the vampire resting nicely on top.

1. Cut two pieces of basic black cardstock using the house framelit.

2.  Run the die through again with a window sheet,  trim off extra so you are just left with the top piece.

3.  Assemble the coffin so that the lid can be opened.  You have to keep the roof flaps on one piece of the black without any adhesive.  I recommend tear n tape adhesive.

4.  Stamp and cut out ghost.

5.  Run pennant die through the big shot with pumpkin pie glimmer paper.

6.  Stamp the sentiment in memento black ink, and cut out with banner die.

7.  Adhere ghost with snail, and the pennant and banner with stampin dimensionals.

8.  Stamp vampire, color with Stampin’ Write markers, and cut out with the cookie cutter punch.

9.  Fill with candy, and cover with a window sheet.

10.  Adhere vampire to window sheet with snail.
