Make a Kawaii book charm to clip to your back pack or planner. These are so cute and easy to make you will want to create one in every color!

What you need:

Start out by flattening some white clay. I used a pasta machine on #2 setting and doubled up that thickness by folding my sheet of clay in half. Cut out a rectangle with a blade or clay cutter.

Flatten your color choice of clay to act as the book cover. I used setting #3 on my pasta machine.

Use a clay cutter to trim the sides of the book cover leaving a slight bit of extra trim/edge.

Fold the rest of the cover over pressing gently on the spine so the cover will hold shape.

Trim off the excess cover.

Press a toothpick into the sides of the cover for detail.

Use your smallest ball end tool to create 2 eye sockets. Roll small black balls of clay the same size as the ball end and gently press into the sockets.

Use your hobby blade to make slash marks to make it look like you could really read through all those pages.

Bake your creation at 265 for 15 minutes. (remember to add an eye pin if you want this as a charm.)

After baking add facial details with a toothpick and acrylic paint.
