Glitter Skeleton Coffin Boxes

Posted by  ·  August 28, 2012  ·  Last Updated: August 28, 2012

I have started to think about Halloween and thought I might have a little Halloween party for my daughter. I love making little favors and thought these little glitter skeleton coffin boxes would be cool.

Silhouette has come out with some amazing new products from printable foil for labels to magnet sheets that can all be cut with the Cameo.  I love this new double sided adhesive. It makes using glitter a breeze.


I found some wooden coffin boxes at Michaels for .99 cents each.My craft assistant gave them a good coat of paint and we allowed them to dry completely.

Another thing I love about Silhouette is being able to buy individual designs to cut.  I found this skeleton for .99 cents.  I opened up the file and resized him smaller and copied him on the page so five could be cut at one time.

Place white side of paper up on the mat, load and cut.  Carefully remove the excess adhesive paper from around the skeletion. Oh my, my mat is so dirty! It does get a workout!

Remove the yellow back from the paper and place skeleton on the box.  Next remove the top white layer and you will be left with a sticky skeleton.

Pour glitter over the design and then pour off excess back into the container.

A dry paint brush can remove any extra glitter.
