Knead clay for two minutes. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130° C) for 15 minutes per ¼" (6mm) of thickness. Do not use in microwave oven. Do not exceed the above temperatures or recommended baking time. Baking should be completed by an adult. Wash hands after use.
With clay conditioning machine at #1 (thickest) setting, make white sheet. Cut out ornament and ornament top. Gently round edges with your finger. With clay conditioning machine at #2 setting, make red, purple and bright green sheets. Cut stripes. Using Bake & Bond Bakeable Adhesive, attach pieces on ornament, attaching ornament top last to overlap top stripe.
Assemble clay extruder with small circle disk. Extrude white strings long enough to outline the stripes and ornament top. Roll extruded strings in silver glitter. Using Bake & Bond Bakeable Adhesive, attach glittered pieces to ornament. Trim strings even with ornament edge.
Cut 1 - ½" wire length. Make loop by wrapping wire around a pen and twisting the ends. Add drop of Bake & Bond Bakeable Adhesive to twisted end and insert into ornament top.
Bake at 275ºF for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Add ornament hook. If desired, make ribbon bow and attach with glue gun.
Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces.
