Make your favorite toaster pastries into tiny charms with this fun polymer clay tutorial.

Create your own cute miniature Pop Tarts. Turn them into unique jewelry or use them as miniatures for your American Girl doll.

What you need:

Roll out some beige clay on setting #3 with your clay machine. Use clay cutter to cut 2 rectangles out. The rectangles are a little long for the true Pop Tart shape so trim a little off the end using a hobby blade.

Mix some brown and tan clays together. You want a light brown for the icing and a little darker for the filling.

Roll your filling color with your clay machine at #4 setting. Trim it up to fit your crust.

You want some edging to show when you place the filling on the bottom half of crust.

Place the top crust on and press the edges using the flat edge of your cutter.

Use a silicone ended tool to smooth the seams together.

Add texture with a toothbrush and poke some holes around the edges of where the filling is.

Use your hobby blade to cut away some of the Pop Tart to make it look like a bite has been taken out. I like to place mine in the freezer for a few minutes before cutting so the colors wont smear when I cut. After cutting use a needle to scrape and rough up the crust where the fake bite marks were made.

Shave some tan chalk and dust the edges to give it a baked look. Add an eye pin to it if you plan to use it as a charm. Pre bake at 265 for 5 minutes.

Mix your icing clay color with some Liquid Fimo using a toothpick till it is a smooth consistency. I am using a metal cuticle pusher (nail tool) to mix mine.

Spread the icing on top of your per baked work. Bake at 265 for 20 minutes.

Wear your favorite snack with this fun Polymer Clay Pop Tart tutorial.

Experiment with different colors to create your favorite toaster pastry in miniature form.
