Grim Gift Boxes

The challenge for Macabre Monday #034 is 'Grim Gift Boxes'.


I designed this in my head instead of falling asleep the other night, but didn't actually get to work on it until today. I was with some friends while working on it and they PROMISED that they will come and bedazzle my coffin for me after I die! -I'm holding you gals to this!-

Another friend has a brother who is discussing a Halloween wedding. The talk was filling these with the bone candy. LOL! Wouldn't that be a HOOT?!?!?!

Oh this is fab, and it's so funny, I was going to wrap some chain around mine, but the piece of chain I had wasn't long enough because my box is deeper than yours, and, LOL, we also both used pearls on the outside. I got the template from mine from Martha Stewart, you can find it HERE
She suggests using two pieces of cardstock, but both templates will fit on one piece of 12x12.
