Join master polymer clay artist Anke Humpert as she shows you step-by-step how to make your own unique tessellation box.

Whether you are old or new to polymer clay, you will love the creative possibilities of these Tessellation Boxes!

Take those saved tin boxes that cookies and sweets come in, and transform them into containers you’ll love to show off.

Starting with the basic tin, Anke shows you how to make your own texture stamps from a variety of simple tools. Then see how to create a mirror image of each texture. Cut out your shapes and you are on your way to creating an endless combination of color and pattern.

Learn tips and tricks to bake and then complete your box for a professional finish.

You’ll love making these in an assortment of sizes and shapes.
