51  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Coffin Curio on: October 12, 2013 12:43:26 AM
Hi All,
This is something I recently completed for the Craftster Trick or Treat swap. I have very little experience with this type of craft, but I think it came out pretty well, thought I'd share.

I made a little coffin curio!


Here's a little detail shot of the top, made with three braided, fuzzy pipe cleaners, a silver pipe cleaner for the bow, a small piece of Halloween ribbon and a small, silver moon bead.


Here's a shot of the whole inside, opened up.


This is a detail shot of the inner left side featuring a tiny bottle of "Halloween Wishing Dust"


This is the inner right side...


I made the little pumpkin and tombstone with Fimo clay, I haven't worked with this stuff in eons - I need smaller fingers!


I Mod Podged a small label onto the back for my partner so if she has this for years, she'll remember who gave it to her and for what reason.


And one more glamour shot of the entire inside.


I really enjoyed making this piece, for me this took a lot of imagination and trial & error just because I don't have much experience with mini things, and paper crafting, but I was kind of going with the theory that too much is never enough, so I just kept adding and adding until I'd covered almost all the surfaces. I was overjoyed when my partner liked it - score!

Thanks for having a look!
Lisa

Hi All!
So happy to be able to share the goodies that I Sew Cute sent me, I love them so much!! I got my package in the mail yesterday but I didn't get to open it until this morning, it was a torture worth the wait! Wink

I opened the box to see this great big happy smile!


Oooh, candy!! I LOVE Warheads! I like giving them to my friends too, just to see their expressions, they're usually priceless!


Next out of the magic pumpkin bag was this fabulous necklace & pendant that I Sew Cute made for me, I love it! It's so glittery and deep, this picture doesn't do it justice.


She also painted me this terrific little notebook with a haunted teapot, I love it so much! Oh, and Halloween socks! I collect these, this package just keeps getting better!


And I've saved the best for last! Get ready for cuteness!


The sweetest, Halloween owlet ever! He's absolutely adorable! His little face is just darling, I just think he's the bees knees! He's definitely going somewhere great in my house so everyone can see him, just look at that mug!


Thank you so much for all my goodies, I can only imagine the amount of work making my little owl, that great necklace and painting that notebook took you, I couldn't be happier!

Thanks to Kittykill for putting this awesome, fast swap together for us, so fun!

Sending to my partner tomorrow, as it turns out, this works better for both of us due to last minute snafoo's & rain delay's. Thank you, universe! Tongue
