Good Morning Everyone,

As I mentioned yesterday I got to spend some time in my Craft Room this weekend.  Today I have another project that I worked on to share with you. 

This is a coffin treat box I made from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  Artiste is fast becoming one of my all time favorite cartridges along with Art Philosophy.  They were both expensive splurges, but so worth it!  Anyway, the paper I used is from the DCWV Tradewinds stack.  It has a wood grain look to it.  For the sentiment, I used a CTMH Dimensional Elements Mixed Shape piece stamped with a Craftsmart Happy Halloween stamp.  After stamping I used some Stampendous Black Embossing Powder and heat set it.  It is hard to see in the picture, but the sentiment has a glossy appearance.  I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I added two bat embellishments from Sandy Lion Essentials.  I filled the inside of the box with candy and I'm going to give it to my husband for Halloween.  He loves Halloween so I thought this little treat box would be just perfect for him.

Thanks for stopping by.
