Halloween is coming

Ok so last week someone asked for a coffin on the mb. Cool. I thought she wanted a shaped card. Turns out I was mistaken but she was able to use half of the design for what she was making.

Here's my coffin card design.
All George.


Then and idea popped into my head.... how about a coffin box?! lol (Is that morbid?) Had to create a design.
HUGE THANKS to JenWeb and DonnaG from the message board for helping me troubleshoot it. They were making test cuts while I was working on the file on my laptop away from home. Between the three of us, I think we worked out all the bugs. (no pun intended).

I finally had a chance to cut it out. Here's what I came up with.






All George for the box and the band. Skel and tombstone tag are from PDDU. Requires Expression because of it's size. Finished size is 3 1/4" tall, 5 3/4" wide, 1" deep. I think it would hold a bag of peanut M&Ms from the candy isle very easily.
