Coffin Box tutorial

1. Print your Coffin Box templates on cardstock and gather supplies.
Be sure to set your margins as close to 0 as possible.
(Recommended supplies: small craft scissors, bone folder, glue runner, ruler)

2. Using the scissors cut along outside edges.

3. Using a bone folder and a ruler, score from each corner to corner, including all inside and outside corners.
There should be a total of 13 score lines.
TIP: Use the tip of a bone folder and trace along the edge of a ruler to create score lines on your project.

4. For this tutorial, the score lines have been outlines in orange to make them easier to see.

5. Use the bone bolder and fold all score lines toward the white side of the paper.

6. Apply glue to all triangular shaped tabs.
There should be a total of 6 tabs.

7. Bring the sides up and apply the tab to the back of the side piece next to it.

8. If using glue and not a glue runner, you can use paper clips to hold the tabs in place while your glue sets and dries.

9. Enjoy your Coffin Box.
TIP: These boxes can be filled with candy, brownies, or any other treat. Also work great as centerpieces or treat boxes.
