An altered coffin box

I saw some nested coffin boxes at Micheal's last week and thought I would just altered them and fill with Halloween candy but as I lay in bed on Saturday night I had a brainwave.. yes I do get my best ideas in bed. So next morning while the house was quite. I made this..

 The quote is from A midsummer's dream, If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended. That you but slumbered while these visions did appear.

I'm thinking of sending it to Stampington.. maybe it will get in one of their publications..
