Paperclay Basket Tie-Ons

basketMaterials Needed:
  • Creative Paperclay
  • Cookie Stamp
  • Rolling pin
  • Tooth pick
  • Watercolor paints/brush
  • Clear acrylic satin or gloss varnish
  • Raffia or other tie-on material (Satin Sheen, papertwist, etc.)
  • Oven - preheated to 250 degrees
  • Non stick cookie sheet
  • Fine grade sandpaper
Procedure:
  1. Working on a smooth clean crafting surface, use rolling pin to evenly flatten desired amount of Paperclay to approximately 1/4" thickness. Rolling the Paperclay out between two sheets of waxed paper will also work.
  2. Gently, with evenly distributed pressure, stamp cookie stamp pattern into the rolled out Paperclay.
  3. With scissors, a round wooden toothpick, or other cutting tool, cut out stamped design from the rolled out Paperclay.
  4. Using a toothpick, form a hole to string through hanging material.
  5. Place designed Paperclay piece onto a non-stick baking sheet, and put into oven preheated to 250 degrees. Bake for approximately 35 minutes, turning design piece over to other side partway through baking time.
  6. Remove carefully from oven and let cool.
  7. Use small folded pieces of sandpaper to sand away rough edges, and create a smooth edged effect.
  8. Paint the basket tie-on with watercolors. The colors will lighten as the paint dries, so be sure to apply a generous coat.
  9. Let dry, and varnish with acrylic satin or gloss acrylic varnish.
  10. Tie onto basket. Can also be used as decorative gift tag accents.
