Dying to get out

Hi everyone,
I am up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog today with this creepy coffin.

This project was so fast and simple to create, but the results are pretty creepy.
Cover your Coffin Box with your choice of paper.  I went with the weathered wood piece from the new Tim Holtz Halloween 8x8 pad. I did not decorate the bottom or the inside of the box since I knew I would be gluing it shut.
On the underside of the lid place another small piece of the same paper and cut through the chipboard using a craft knife.
Glue your skeleton to the top of the box so his head pops out of the hole. I glued him right to the top of the box.  I actually cut him in half and saved his bottom for another project.  I cut an additional tiny hole so a hand could peep out.  Add brown ink to the edges of the coffin and the hole. Flick on black paint and wrap the box with chains.  Do not wrap them all the way around.  You want the back to remain flat so you can attach it to your frame.  
I painted the Tim Holtz large framed panel with black soot Distress Paint and rubbed just a tiny bit of Tarnished Brass paint to highlight it.  Place your coffin in the middle and glue it down.  Add a ton of moss and your project is complete! 
Happy Halloween!
