Create personalized holiday wrapping with polymer clay

Add some extra style to your gift wrapping with polymer clay. After the gift receiver opens their gift they can keep the polymer clay decor, add an ornament hook and hang it in their tree.

What you need:

wrap-3

Roll out one cane of white, one cane of red that’s about half the width of the white and, another tiny cane of red.

wrap-4

Gently press together all your canes. At this stage, the length of my canes was about 4 or 5 inches long.

wrap-5

Roll your canes together, stopping to twist your work a few times. Stop when you have a candy cane look and length you want.

wrap-6

In your baking pan create cursive lettering like the word love as shown or someone’s name. If you are having a hard time getting the look you want practice on some scrap clay. Bake clay as directed. I used Sculpey III which bakes at 275 and baked for 20 minutes.

wrap-7

Lay some ribbon down and place your wrapped gift on top. Weave the ribbon through loops in your work. Turn it upside down and tie the ribbon in the back. This box was wrapped in the brown paper bag and I used a paint marker to add the snowflakes and accents.

wrap-8

To give the sheet music an aged look I painted on some watered down brown acrylic paint. You can blot the paint with a paper towel if needed.
