Porcelain Roses Keepsake Box

This Porcelain Roses Keepsake Box from Linda Peterson looks like sometime your grandmother would have loved. You'll love the vintage feel of this home craft tutorial.

Porcelain Keepsake Box


  • Jar of choice
  • Craft Porcelain air dry clay
  • Clay shaper tool or metal knitting needle
  • Tacky glue
  • Decoupage medium
  • Decorative paper
  • Paint – color of choice
  • Paintbrush
  • Organza ribbon in color of choice


  1. Keep a moist towel nearby and wrap the extra clay inside to keep it from drying out.
  2. Dip your fingers in a glass of water to moisten the clay if it dries to the touch. Slightly moisten the areas to be joined. This allows a better bond. Do not bake, this tends to bring air bubbles to the surface and gives an undesirable effect.
  3. When preparing the jar, make sure the jar is clean. Paint or decoupage paper on the lid to cover over any undesirable wording. Allow to dry.
  4. To create the rose bud, roll ball the size of a pea. Flatten between fingers and stretch into a rectangle. Pinch one edge until thin and ruffled.

  7. Wrap these petals around the rosebud in a clockwise fashion. Repeat until the rose is as big as desired, using three to five petals. If needed, moisten the base of the petals slightly with water from fingertips to help attach the petals to rose.
