The end of the school year used to have me making thank you gifts for all of the teachers. With one out of college, one in college, and one entering her senior year of high school I don't give as many teacher presents as I used to, but why not come up with an easy peasy project that could be used as a gift or a tag or a card topper?? Naturally I pulled out the Creative PaperClay and set to work.
texture sheets of choice
assorted cardstock (for cards)
assorted ribbons and trim (for tie-ons)
plastic bag (to protect work surface from inks)
optional: heart shaped cutter, Kemper© circle cutter or knitting needle
1) Pull or cut off a bit of the Creative PaperClay (I used about 1/8 of the block). Rewrap any leftovers tightly in plastic wrap to prevent drying.
2) Separate the piece into smaller pieces and then roll each into a ball (mine were each about 1" round).
6) If you used a heart cutter as I did, the edges may be rough. Edges are easily cleaned up by using a cool little tool called Sandits™. Just rub it along the edges and voila! all the jagged bits disappear quickly.
I hope you have enjoyed this project. I think you can see with a few simple steps anyone can achieve WOW results that will have the gift recipiants wondering "How did she do that?!"
