I had a few paper mache coffins that I have altered using designer paper, handmade paper, die cuts, stamps/inks, fibers/ribbon, stickers and LOTS of Perfect Paper Adhesive (I should own stock in this company!). I will not do a step by step because my daughter needs the computer to do her homework--yes, we live in the stone-age and share a computer here! I will make relevant comments along the way.
|Goosebumps on the side and bottom.|
|A little bit of netting under the medallion.|
|The bottom of this coffin is actually a greyish color, pictured below. I love this fiber on the edge of the lid--it gives it that coffiny look!|
|Spider web is heat embossed over woodgrain stamped and distressed paper.|
|This fiber reminded me of spider webs.|
|This fiber reminded me of the silk coming from a spinning spider.|
