Create and Embossed Clay Heart Ornament by Jessa Plant

Posted on December 21 2020

Hello again friends! This is Jessa from Sparkle Living and I have a sweet craft to share with you today. This Embossed Clay Heart is made with oven bake clay, a stencil and the edge is made to look foiled using Rinea Foiled Paper!

 

What You'll Need

  • Oven bake clay
  • Rolling Pin
  • Stencil
  • Cookie Cutter
  • Rinea Foiled Paper
  • Paper trimmer or scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue

Embossed Clay Heart Instructions

  • Roll out the oven bake clay on parchment paper, or other non-stick surface (I used an old silicone baking mat.) Try to keep the clay about 1/4 inch thick.

  • Lay your stencil on the surface and roll over it a few times with the rolling pin to create the embossed image. You can also use an embossing folder or stamp to create the image if you'd like.
  • Place the cookie cutter on the clay and press down, removing any excess clay on the outside of the cutter. Use a skewer or a small straw to poke a hole at the top of the clay. Then remove the cookie cutter.
  • Smooth out the sides of the heart with your finger, trying to make the edge as straight as possible.
  • Bake in the oven according to the directions on the clay, then let cool.

  • Cut a strip of Rinea Foiled Paper in Ruby/Gold Gloss and use craft glue or hot glue to wrap it around the edge of the heart.
  • Add a ribbon and hang.
  • For easy giving create a card with an embossed background. I used a similar stencil and ran it through my die cut machine. I used a chipboard shim, Rinea Foiled Paper in Ruby/Gold Glossy and placed the stencil on top, then my usual sandwich. The foiled paper came out nicely embossed. I glued it to cardstock and attached the clay heart.
