I have a fun & cute little treat box to show you today – I think that it is super adorable and I just can’t stop looking at it – it just makes me smile!

As soon as I saw the Home Sweet Home Thinlits dies in the Holiday Catalog I knew I could turn that house shape into a coffin – and when I saw those cute halloween cookie cutter shapes, my light bulb went off!

You will find links to the printable/downloadable Project Sheet AND Tutorial that have photos & detailed instructions on how to make this below…look for the red text!

Here it is…what do you think?


I didn’t get around to making this before now because of working on updating my blog and all that goes along with it BUT I decided I just had to get down and make it at least before Halloween arrives – and it turned out so much better than I had imagined!

The box is made using the house shaped die from Home Sweet Home Thinlits (pg 40 Holiday Catalog) and I added a red liner to the bottom to add that vampire feel!

I stamped Dracula using a stamp from Cookie Cutter Halloween (pg 53 Holiday Catalog) and colored him in using Markers.  The cross is colored using my old Gold Stampin Marker – gold & red just work so well together that I couldn’t resist!

I shaped him using the Cookie Cutter Punch (pg 6 Holiday Catalog) and attached him to a piece of folded acetate so that he moves!  Why?  So that you can move him forwards…


Fill the coffin with candy…I used candy corn…I am completely addicted to the stuff!!!


Then fold him back down again…


And close the lid…


I decorated the lid using stamps from Jar of Haunts and Cookie Cutter Halloween and used a piece of Halloween Night Bakers Twine to hold the lid closed…

I absolutely LOVE it and I think that both kids & adults would love to receive!
