Coffin box


Just a quick post tonight as the Haunted Design House chllenge ends tomorrow. So, here's a box I made today, for the following challenges:
Macabre Mondays - Grim Goft Box
Darkness Inspiration - Graveyard

Stamp It Crazy - Skulltastic!
Paperplay Challenges - use stickers (all my spiders on the inside came from a sheet of stickers that I got in a goodie box from HDH, thanks so much!)

And, because I think it's probably illegible in the photos, here's the ticket stub that I did in PSP. When I first started this, I was aiming for something to do with a haunted rollercoaster. That obviously fell by the wayside, but I liked the ticket stub so much that I decided to use it anyway.The skeleton came from Itkupilli, and the template for the box came from Martha Stewart, you can find it here
