Project Instructions

Follow package directions for conditioning clay to prepare for use.

Roll out a piece about 1/8"-3/16" thick. 

Using the letters and tools in the embossing set, stamp name into the clay. 

Using the clay blade or the rectangle cutter, cut out around the name, making sure you have enough at the left end for a hole.

Roll out another piece and stamp the date.

Roll a third piece, cut with the circle cutter and stamp with the heart.

Poke a hole at the top of each charm.

Follow the directions included with the clay for baking.

Once the pieces are cooled, rub cover with black paint, making sure to get it down into the letters. Rub off excess. Let dry.

Thread the jump rings through the holes. 

Cut three 6" pieces of black bamboo cord. Tie a lark's head knot around each jump ring, as shown.

Hold all three pieces together until they hang in the way you like. Tie all three into a knot at the top. Trim the excess cord, leaving about ¼", and insert into the clamp and secure.

Add a jump ring and a clasp to finish the project off.
