I'm still in a big Valentine's mood, and I think that's OK as long as it doesn't continue after Valentine's day is over! The weekend was pretty cold but it was a good time for me to finish painting the beams in my bedroom. In the mean time my daughter came up with this project for today, some Valentine treats she is going to give her friends, incorporating clay hearts she created.
The materials you will need:
Polymer clay (red, white, pink), Sculpey or Fimo are fine.
To make the hearts, roll out the clay to an even thickness, she uses that tool that looks like a pasta machine, but you can use a simple roller. Then it's up to your imagination to create the shapes you want, well, in this case hearts. Don't forget to poke a little hole to string the ribbon through later on.
Then, they go into the oven to harden. She set the oven at 275°F, they stayed in there for 15 min. (she kept on telling me to write about the importance of following the manufacturer instructions because each brand has its own times ;)
While the hearts were in the oven, somebody else was pretty willing to help stuff the treat bags.
Once the heart charms cooled down, it was time to tie the ribbon.
Cute, don't you think so? They can also be used as a necklace charm.
For now they are simply adorning the treats.
Thank you so much for participating in the Valentine's Day Heart Giveaway! The winner is:
Thanks for your support!
