Spooky Coffin & PPA117


I always give my niece & nephew a goofy Halloween gift—it’s mostly candy, but I try to put it in something fun. This year I downloaded a coffin pattern from MS and cut it out from some Basic Gray cardstock:


My lighting is not too good; the colors are really a bit more intense. I added a little “trap window”":


But on the inside, it is all good---lots & lots of candy! I added some big grosgrain ribbon in Halloween colors, too---after all, all coffins should have ribbon, right? That qualifies it for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge, too! I did add a non-spooky little card:


Thanks for looking!
