Valentine's Day - Air Dry Clay Box Favor or Treat Boxes

Good morning everyone. Today I am so excited to show you some fun favor boxes I did from the inspiration of Linda's Deco Den Post. I had no idea what is 'deco den' until watching Linda's tut. After checking out her cool tutorial clip, I thought 'wow, how fun! I got to try it'. So I stamped out a Mini Winter Tilda of the Sweet Christmas Dream Collection from Magnolia-licious. I quickly decorated and couldn't believe the short time it took me. So quick and I even forgot to give Tilda some blush on her cheek, hehe. Then the next day, I did two more (without an image) on some spare moment.

I think I should have cut out the image since the image was a bit too big with the die cut. Next time when I get more time, I will cute out the Magnolia images and try it again.

Since I am leaving in a few days to LA, I thought this will make a great little goodies to bring with me to some of the girls there, so I decided to do more. Thanks to my husband to help filling the 'cream' for me. Between himself and I, we did 6 boxes in an evening. I wish I would have more time, so I can do a better job :o)

Here are the boxes I did (with my husband's help on the cream)

Closer view on some other styles.

I put some Kisses chocolate inside

I hope you will check out Linda's blog to see her wonderful tutorial and have a try on this. It's not only a quick project, but I had a lot of fun doing it. Thank you for stopping by and will see you soon :o)

Cabio your creations are gorgeous!!!! Love the way you incorporated tilda on them!!!!! FYI I used this technique a couple of years ago when I made faux cupcakes for a bridal shower. I don't have a picture as I was not blogging then. But it was a lot of fun to do!!!!!

Oooooo how yummy, Cabio. They looks so scrumptous. Tilda looks great on anything. Nice of your hubby to help. I'd be afraid to even let mine in the craftroom much less the kitchen.

Cabio, these boxes are absolutely adorable. Love the fact that you used both heart and rectangle boxes and that you could use round or anything you wanted to, so nice to have such sweet handmade gifts and to be able to use things from your home... Thank you for sharing. Your coloring of Tilda is so amazing.
Hugs, Jean
