Spook-tac-u-lar Day 28: Dracula Doughnuts in Coffin (And a Winner)

Welcome back to Spook-tac-u-lar Day 28.  Remember to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ when you are finished visiting here.

First up, it is time to announce the winner of Monday's giveaway.  The winner (chosen by random org) is comment number 10 which belongs to Peggy Sue.  I have sent you an email and will get this mailed out to you as soon as I get your address. Congrats! :)

Now for today's Halloween project.  You may remember that I told you earlier this week that I had another doughnut project to share with you.  Well, here it is.  Dracula Doughnuts in their own little coffin. 
To make the coffin, I started out with a coffin box purchased from Michaels craft store.  This came in a set of three different sized coffin boxes and I used the middle size for my holder. 


I painted the coffin black and then used a white painte pen to add faux stitch lines around the outside of the top.  I then used the Happy Hauntings Cartridge to cut the RIP out of white vinyl.  For the inside, I took a piece of red satin material and fit it into the inside of the box.  I used hot glue to fold the edges in and attach it to the coffin.  You only need a very small amount of fabric, so if you get 1/4 a yard, you will have some left over.
Now, it was time to make my dracula for inside the coffin.  I started out by getting a four pack of individual wrapped doughnuts.  These are the Little Debbie brand doughnuts.  They are the only ones I have found that don't have a lot of writing on the front of the package.
Now, I took some black satin material and just cut a cape shape to wrap around the doughnuts.  I just eyeballed this and then used a small dot of hot glue to attach the cape at the front.  Again, you will only need a very small amount of this material.  Then, I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge and cut the face which was also hot glued onto the front of the doughnuts.

Now, I put my little dracula into his coffin.  I gave this to Kaylee and she got a real kick out of it.  I am not sure if she is going to eat the doughnuts or not, because she said it may be too cute.  Luckily, you can easily open the doughnuts at the bottom, slip them out and keep your dracula shape safe.

I am entering these into the following challenges:
