You go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly, share one with your BFF!

Make some PB & J charms out of polymer clay. Wear them as earrings or make them into necklaces and give one to your BFF. You can even use them as dollhouse miniature props.

What you need:

Flatten some white clay into about 1/2 cm thickness. Cut out 2 squares using you square mini cutter.

Shave some brown chalk using a hobby blade and paint the sides of your bread slices using a synthetic paintbrush. (if you get excessive chalk dust on the bread whites you can remove most of it with a wet cotton swab)

Texture your clay bread by scraping the surface with a needle in a small and tight circular motion. Texture both sides of your bread slices.

You can leave the bread square (right) or use a toothpick to press in indentions on the sides of the bread and tops (left).

To make peanut butter mix brown and tan clay (1 part brown 5 part tan) to create a peanut butter color. Tear small pieces of the clay off and mix in a little Liquid Fimo, stir with a toothpick. You want it to be smooth yet thick like peanut butter. Add Liquid Fimo to thin or more clay to thicken the mixture.

To make jelly tint some Liquid Fimo with your color choice of shaved chalk, stir with a toothpick.

Insert eye pins into the bread slices. Use toothpicks to spread jelly on one bread and peanut butter on the other. Bake at 265 for 20 minutes.

After your charms are cooled, use them as fun jewelry pieces. You can also use these as dollhouse miniature props just omit the eye pins.
