#076 – Circle of Love 
Gift Box Decoration
Clay Casting Project
An easy project for kids of all ages –
and you can bake up some chocolate-painted cookies to match!


        
#076 – Circle of Love  and  #405 – Ruffled Heart

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp: #076 – Circle of Love
Clay - we recommend Creative Paperclay® which is non-toxic and air dries to a paintable pure white 
1 clay casting* - #076 – Circle of Love (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
1 gift box
1 2” round cookie cutter
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (spray can)
Acrylic paints: red, metallic gold
Acrylic spray varnish

Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from paper instead of clay (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions). The choice is yours. 
Instructions:

1.  While clay is wet, cut out casting using cookie cutter. If you are going to make an ornament, use toothpick to poke a hole in the top (see How to Make a Hole). Let dry.
2.   Sand rough edges smooth.
3.  Optional: Apply primer and let dry.
4.  Apply white paint to background and let dry. Apply colors separately to engine, one color at a time (refer to photo), letting paint dry between colors.
5.  Optional:  Apply a coat of varnish for permanence. Note: Varnish will leave a more glossy finish.
6. Use hot glue to attach magnet to back, or make an ornament by attaching a piece of jute or string, fishing line, or ribbon 8" long (or longer if desired) for hanger.
