    Project Instructions

    Print out the templates on a sheet of cardstock paper and carefully cut out the templates. Cut out at least two of each template.
    Roll half of the Deep Red Pearl through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #1 (widest) setting until the clay is smooth and pliable. Place the sheet of clay on an index card and put your round pointed template in place. Use the craft blade to carefully cut out around the template.
    Roll a small amount of the Gold clay on the #1 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine and cut out 3 circles of clay using the Sculpey Round Mini Cutter, set aside. Roll out the rest of this remaining small portion of Gold clay into 2 thin coils of clay or extrude it with the round dye in your Sculpey extruder. Lay these 2 coils of clay into place on your ornament, curving to imitate the curve of a real ornament. Make sure to leave room to place your three circles between the two coils. Trim the edges of the coils to the edge of the ornament.
    Remove the 3 circles of clay to another sheet of paper and add the gold glitter to the circles. Place them carefully back into place and add a small amount of glitter to the bottom tip of the ornament and the top “hanger” portion of the ornament. NOTE: to prevent getting unwanted glitter onto your ornament, the three circles can be baked separately from the ornament and glued into place after the ornament is baked. Set the completed ornament on a clean sheet of paper and place on your baking sheet.
    Roll out the ½ package of the Moss clay on the #1 setting on the Clay Conditioning Machine. Lightly spray your texture stamp with water and press firmly into the sheet of clay. Remove the stamp.
    Place your round template so that the “hanger” portion is NOT in the textured portion of the clay. Carefully cut out your round ornament by tracing around the template with your craft blade.
    The “hanger” portion of the clay can be textured using the rubber chisel from the Sculpey Style and Details Toolset before adding Gold glitter to the “hanger” portion of the clay.
    Rub the Green glitter over the textured portion of the clay.
    Place the completed ornament on the baking sheet with the red ornament.
    Place one of the templates on top of the other and trace a portion of the edge. Hold the top in the same place and swing the upper template to the left slightly and trace again. Cut out this piece of the bottom template to create a “reflection” area to added glitter.
    Roll ½ package of Gold Sculpey clay out on the #1 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine and place the template with the reflection cut out onto the clay and carefully trace around the template with a craft knife. LEAVE THE TEMPLATE IN PLACE.
    Rub the Silver glitter into the cut out area of the reflection and THEN remove the template. Add some Silver glitter to the top “hanger” area. Move to the sheet of paper on your baking sheet.
    Trim the Starry Night scrapbook paper to 5x10 inches. Glue the sheet of Gold cardstock on the bottom back of this paper and fold the paper over the Gold sheet so that you have the Starry Night (red) on the outside of the card. The inside of the card will have the plain Gold cardstock on the bottom and the patterned area of the scrapbook paper on the top half.
    Cut 8-inch lengths of the gold cord and tie them around the bottle of glue to create small tight bows. Trim the cord. Use a thin piece of wire folded in half to help thread the gold beads onto the loop of gold cord. (This clever tip for threading beads onto flexible thread is very similar to using a needle threader and was a suggestion of my 10-year-old son years ago!)
    Glue the bow to the top of the card and position the bead at the top of the ornament and glue the ornament into place, covering the rest of the gold cord.
