INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cover your work surface with craft or newspaper.
 2. Clean each KraftyBlok™ inside and out and dry completely. Place an Original KraftyBlok™ flat on the work surface with the opening at the top. Now, place a KraftyBlok™ Mini on the same work surface, flat with the opening at the bottom.
3. Choose two black glass gems of similar size for each of your mummy’s eyes. Next, choose 5 – 6 wiggles for each mouth.
4. Place the eyes 1/4” of the way down from the top of the block. Then arrange the wiggles 1/4” of the way up from the bottom of the block to form a smile.
5. Once you have them positioned to your liking, glue the gems and wiggles in place with E-6000® and allow one hour to dry, meanwhile, cut the muslin into 1” strips.
6. Add pupils and iris to both eyes, using the photo as a guide. Allow drying.
7. To decoupage each block, lightly coat the front with a decoupage medium. Apply 1” strips around the eyes and smile. Don’t cover them up; they should appear to be peeking out of the wrappings.
8. Stand each KraftyBlok™ up and continue adding decoupage medium and strips of muslin to the glass surface, angling and overlapping strips to achieve a realistic mummy look.
9. To add hair to the larger mummy, cut two 9” strips of muslin. Using a pair of scissors, create a fringe one side by cutting 1/2” slits, 1/4” apart on one side.
10. Add decoupage medium to the top of the large KraftyBlok™ and apply the fringe uncut edge down to the top of the block. Do not apply medium to the fringe.
11. Using a craft knife cut away any loose cloth that may be covering the openings of both KraftyBlok’s™.
12. Once dry, place each KraftyBlok™ in a stand. Fill the larger mummy with yummy Halloween treats and place a string of lights or a lightbulb with 6” cord in the opening of the smaller KraftyBlok™ mummy.
