3D Challenge, Homemade Faux Clay Seals

3D Challenge

There is a challenge this month over at CreativeScrapbookDivas to share your favorite 3D project for a holiday. Michelle's challenge was so cute with all her little pillowboxes that I had to give it a try. This is one of mine with my homemade faux clay seal and the word "friendship".

This gift is linked to:
Scrappy Gifts

I have 4 of these little rose clay seals and this pillow box together for sale on My Etsy

I used my bigkick to emboss the box then scored the lines. ONLY glue the bottom flap then the top flap down. This leaves room inside for folding the sides and filling with candy, buttons, ribbons or any gift.

Michelle's blog has several links to help with templates, SVG files for your electronic diecut machines, twine ect. Check her out! I don't use the SVG file, I printed a template and handcut.

Now for my favorite 3D Holiday projects to share for the challenge:

These are made with mini paper mache boxes. They are filled with microbeads to make them shakers, wrapped in paper and layered with torn pieces of old cards. I wrapped them in trim from old doilies and added an eyelet screw to hang a treasure. The final touch is my wonderful Aleene's glitter snow. They adorn my winter berry wreath.
I covered this tiny box with an old book page then music paper. The angel is hanging from a loop which is screwed into the bottom. I get my old vintage buttons from a great lady at the local flea market. She has hundreds of fun old buttons. This extra gift is hanging on a Christmas gift bag with a matching tag.
