Hello! Today is our IHP DT Challenge day and I hope you’ll play along! If you do, be sure to let me a comment here and upload your project tagged with ihp0910 so we can all find it.
Deb challenged us to make either a treat holder type thing and/or a table decoration (place setting, etc.). I did a little of both!
First I went to Target and bought candy. That’s always a good place to start, right? While I was there I saw a little coffin tin and I thought it would make a cute gift. But, I didn’t want to alter it. So, lucky me came home and Googled “coffin template” only to find that Martha had one! DING DING! I resized hers 50% because it was WAY too big for what I wanted. I cut it out of some Spooks paper, filled it with the purchased candy and then wrapped it with some 1-1/2” White Crochet ribbon that I cut, beat up, ripped and generally abused until it looked like mummy gauze.
For the placecard I printed using BN Manson Nights (free font) onto my new Copic X-Press cardstock and then stamped in Palette Noir the graveyard tag from the new OCL set Spooky Tags. I layered that on more paper from Spooks (the black and the silver paper are both from that line).
The finishing touch was adding 2 little spiders to the coffin (also from Spooky Tags).
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I hope you like it too! Please be sure to check out the rest of the team’s projects today:
