Continuing the fun as I pronounced yesterday, here's my BOO-tiful Halloween-present for you.
It's a coffin!
Yes, a coffin!
Download the pattern (pdf-file) for the coffin and the lid HERE. (rightclick > "save target as")
Page 1 of the pattern contains the lid, page 2 the base.
Solid lines are cutting lines, striped areas are the tabs for glueing it all together. Folding lines are dotted.
Please note that the pictures for this tutorial were taken while I made the prototype of this coffin. The pattern has been adjusted slightly, so yours will look a tiny little bit different from mine.
Either print out the pattern directly to your sheets of artpaper OR print it out on a white piece of paper and transfer it to your craft paper, using your preferred method.
If you have no clue: A tutorial (pdf) for different methods can be found at "Annie Things Possible".
LIGHTLY scratch along the folding lines on the "right" side of your paper, meaning the side which later will be the outside of the little coffin. This will help you to get nice and clean folds.
I recommend using a metal ruler for both of these steps.
Fold everything closed, make sure the tabs will be "caught" between the adjacent folded part.
I used paperclips to hold everything together until the glue dried... I didn't want to sit around for hours, holding small folds in place ;)
Embellish your personal mini-coffin the way you want.
Fill it with treats for your guests or put the invitations to your Halloween party inside...
Whatever you choose to do with it - have fun! ^-^
