130 Creative Paperclay® Apples

It is hard to believe it has been 6 months, this is my last project for the first Creative Paperclay® Design Team.  I wanted to go out with a bang.  I decided that to make 130 apple ornaments for my daughter’s school for the faculty and staff for Teacher Appreciation Day.  Keep in mind this can be used with ANY cookie cutter, I chose an apple for obvious reasons.
Materials:
7 – 8oz packs of Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material
Apple Cookie Cutter
Fondant Roller
1/2″ Circle Cutter
Exacto Knife
Sand Paper
Slip (Dried Paperclay and water)
1/16″ Paper Punch
Sculpture Tool
PLAID Apple Barrels Paints ( 20401 Bright Red, 20521 Nutmeg Brown, 20584 Lemon Chiffon, 20754 Hunter Green and Folk Art 954 Fresh Foliage)
Brushes
6715 – Kathy Davis Collection Stamp by Inkadinkadoo Inc.
Staz On – Blazing Red Ink Pad
White Card Stock

1.  Take clay and roll it out with fondant roller to a uniform thickness.  Using the cookie cutter cut out apples (repeat as many times as necessary until desired number has been reached.)

2 Allow to dry for 24 hours.  Sand the apple to desired smoothness.  Take hole punch and punch a hole in the stem. 

3.  Take more clay, roll out clay, cut circles out and cut the circle in half.  Pinch one end of the leaf and fold.  Allow to dry.

4.  Take leaf and apply with slip onto the apple.  Allow to dry.  Stamp the tags for the ornaments.

5.  Paint apples, seal, add tag and ribbon.  Give to an amazing teacher or staff member.
