Kraftie Kre8ations Black and Orange Challenge Artiste Coffin Box

This is my submission for the Kraftie Kre8ations's Design Team Black and Orange Challenge.  It had to be a 3-D object.  I don't think I was very comfortable making 3-D objects from scratch 6 months ago but with my Cricut anything is possible.  The Artiste cartridge from Close to my Heart is full of cool boxes and 3-D objects.

I cut the box from Creative Memories black shimmer paper, the skeleton and top layer of the tombstone is CM Platinum shimmer.  The orange shimmer is from the Paper Company.  I ran it through the Sizzix with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  All edges are chalked with Versa Magic Midnight Black.  I did not chalk the edges of the box since it will be handled so much.  I used glitter and glue for the embellishment on top of the coffin.  I searched long and hard from an appropriate orange glitter glue and it just did not happen.

I cut the skeleton 5.5" to make sure it actually fit in the 6" box and it worked with a little twisting!

I put a small paper easel on the back of the tombstone to make it stand up. 

 I am going to give this to my son today!  Happy Halloween!
