Paperclay Monster Bookmark – How To

First I would like to thank the Creative Paperclay Design Team and Terri Sproul for this amazing opportunity.  I am truly honored and humbled being on the 1st Creative Paperclay Design Team.  I do this because I LOVE IT not because I get paid.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this amazing opportunity and you bet I will be resubmitting for the 2nd Creative Paperclay Design Team!

This idea is nothing new I originally saw something very similar on Pinterest with the Wicked Witch of the East in a book.  My friend Leslierahye did an amazing bookmark out of felt with one of my digis for a design team project.  I decided to combine both ideas and make my own bookmark, which I have already lost to my daughter.

Materials Needed:
Creative Paperclay
Chip board (I used a coaster)
Fondant Roller
Circle Clay Cutter
Sculpting Tools
Black String
Needle with the end snipped off stuck in a cork
Googly Eyes
Paint Brush
Sandpaper (optional)

1.  Roll out clay to a unformed thickness.  Take circle cutter and cut two circles.

2.  Cut coaster to the desired width.

3.  Score clay and lay the coaster in the middle of the bottom circle.  Add water and score the other piece of clay and smooth them together.  Add two circles for googly eyes and detail for the mouth.

4.  Taking the needle insert the string into the top of the “head” to produce hair.  Allow to dry for 24 hours.

5.  Sand if desire.  Paint and seal!
