Something to flatten the clay (I use a rolling pin)
Various rubber stamps
Paint of your choice
Adhesive (I used hot glue)
Step one: Flatten out your clay so it's about 1/8" or so... You don't want it "too" flat!
Step two: Take your stamps and stamp in to the clay, making a firm impression.
Step three: Using your Xacto knife, cut out the stamped shapes, let dry.
Step four: Using your paint, paint the stamped clay images as soon as they are dry enough.
Step five: Take the 2 pieces to the lid, cover the flat round part with ribbon - I put strips down to cover the silver piece. Take hot glue - and glue this to the underneath part of the other part of the lid.
Step six: After pieces have dried completely, add to the lids of the jars to decorate.
Step seven: Add ribbon to the lid to finish decorating the piece!
I am putting chocolates in it - and will give away for Valentines day! I really had fun doing both of the jars - and depending on the holiday at hand, I can create one of a kind projects for every holiday! I hope you enjoyed today's idea...and I am sorry it is late!
