Coffin Box: Take 3

Hi friends,
You're at day 3, the final coffin box revealed. This box can be created with one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock. Unlike the other two, it is two separate base & lid. So let's take a peek at it:

When you first look at this paper, it looks like roses in bloom. But, when you take a closer look, you see that those "roses" are actually bats flying in circles- really cool! I punched out some bats, pinched their wings up & popped them up on the coffin so they look like they're flying around eagerly waiting for their master to rise! Oooooh, creepylicious!

I also wrapped the "chain" ribbon around it.

Wanna see what's inside??? Here's a peek...FANGS!!!! gummy ones, of course. These came out of the same package as the feet I used for the witch shoes.

So witch one (oops, I meant,--->which) should you make? Well, here's a peek at the 3 coffin boxes side by side so you can see the difference:
Coffin Box Take 1 is in the middle, Take 2 is on the left, & Take 3 is on the right. As you can see, Box three is bigger, Box 1 is wider, & box 2 is the smallest.

Here's another look:
Box 3 is bigger, wider, deeper- the big daddy of coffin boxes.
Box 1 (middle) is slimmer than the others.

There you have it- Three coffin boxes, three different sizes, one frightfully fun creation :) & now that I'm no longer "coffin" I'm feeling like myself again!

Jinkies! I almost forgot to give you the pattern for this coffin box. It comes from my good friend, Martha Stewart and yes, it's a good thing :)
