Creative Paperclay (at least 1 package)
Rolling pin (or item to roll out clay)
Silent Setter (or something to create small holes with)
Molds (flower and leaf)
Radiant Pearls paint
Container to use as a mold (I used a Longaberger basket protector)
Step one: Flatten out your Creative Paperclay. This needs to be wide enough to go around the whole container you are using. I used 1 1.2 packages for this project.
Step two: Cut the corners out of the clay. Lay it on top of the basket protector so you can finish it up.
Step three: Using your stylus, cut the excess off from where the top is around all 4 edges.
Step four: Using a Silent Setter (or other type of round hole punchers), start to put 3 holes down each side of the box. Repeat all around the box.
Step five: Using the small end of the stylus, pull out the little clay pieces from the holes you have created.
Step six: Using the water, soften out any of the imperfections in the clay - let dry overnight...
Step seven: After the piece has dried overnight - add it to the inside of the basket protector to dry on the inside of the basket.
Step ten: After the box has dried, start to add the ribbon to the sides, creating a bow at the very top. I tied the bow twice to make sure the ribbon didn't come undone.
Step eleven: Add a simple stamp or signature to the bottom of the box, showing you created it.
Step twelve: When the paint has dried on the flowers and leaves, start to add them to the box using hot glue.
Thank you for checking out my project, personally I love the ribbons on the side - though it was not easy to get the holes the right way to thread the ribbon through! I hope you enjoy making your own project...and make sure to share with us what you have done!
