Crouching Spider, Hidden Candy


OK so it wasn't hard to guess what was coming, but I hope you've enjoyed the unveiling of my die cut Halloween coffin boxes. This one has a spider web made of black vinyl hidden on the inside of the coffin's lid. A small length of fishing wire is attached to the spider so kids will get an extra hidden surprise as they reach for the goodies inside. I have always loved shiny black on matte, a subtle and entrancing effect.


Here are some of my prototypes. Can anyone guess what's inside? I'll give you a hint - it's white and emaciated. Please be very specific - only FULLY correct guesses will qualify.

I will email a free SVG or DXF spider file to anyone who guesses correctly by next Monday, Oct 10, 2011.

  9. Cecelia, I didn't get a chance to email you from home this morning! Your boxes cut and folded perfectly. When I'm back at home next week I'll cut some more. Sorry for contacting you through The blog but I don't have my other email. I'm going to get the new silhouette when it comes out. Thanks for the good information.
    Thanks again.
