Coffin Utensil Holders

We make individual coffin utensil holders for each of our guests. Inside each coffin is a plastic fork, spoon and knife. Today we are going to share how you can make these for your guests too.

Tools and Materials

Black cardstock
Large glue stick
Plain printer paper
Bone folder
Craft knife or scissors
Paper clips
Decorations and/or stickers
Coffin box top and bottom templates found at : 

1. Print top and bottom coffin templates on regular 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper. Place one template on each sheet of cardstock and staple around the template to hold in place. Do not staple inside the lines of the template, as this will create holes in your finished box.
2. Using a bone folder and ruler, score on the dotted lines of each template, pressing through to the cardstock underneath.
3. Using a craft knife or scissors, cut on solid lines of templates, working from the inside out.
4. Fold sides and tabs of both top and bottom where scored. Using a glue stick, glue tabs to inside of box bottom and lid as shown in the template. Clamp with paperclips to secure until dry.
5. Fill bottom of box with utensils. Add stickers or other decorations to top of lid and place lid on top of box. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the box and tie into a bow. 

These coffin boxes can also be used as treat boxes to give to your guests also.
