Rainbow Box




Make a rainbow clay box from a mini altoids tin.

Step 1: Supplies

Mini altoids tin

Assorted colors of polymer clay

Pasta machine or rolling pin

A razor or other sharp cutting edge

Step 2: Roll Clay

Roll each color into a log shape about half the diameter of a pencil and place them side by side. Gently push them together. Cut them so they are all the same length.

Step 3: Flatten

Using your pasta machine or rolling pin flatten them into one thin sheet.

Step 4: Cut

Place your tin on top and cut around it leaving enough extra to smooth around the edges. Drape this over your tin.

Step 5: Smooth and Open

Smooth the clay down around the edges, Carefully open the tin to make sure clay is not in the way and close it again.

Step 6: Cut the Top

Cut and smooth the top the same way you did the bottom.

Step 7: Bake

Cover a cookie sheet with foil and bake according to the directions on your clay package.
