Don't you just love a fun little craft?
I had no idea what craft I wanted to make for Valentine's Day until I saw some cute homemade clay hearts that Vanessa from At The Picket Fence created. She made her clay and I tried, but somehow my clay didn't harden and was brittle.
I think I may have added too much baking soda. (That's what happens when you rush things)
I was still determined to make some cute little clay hearts, so I headed on over to Michael's and I bought some Sculpey baking clay.
I bought one package each of pink and white clay and just rolled it out to about a little less than 1/4", then used some heart shaped cookie cutters and an ice pick to poke a hole for a piece of ribbon.
I pressed one of the edges from an antique lace doily that my grandmother made many years ago.
Then I baked the clay hearts at 275 degrees for 15 -18 minutes.
I tied a few of the clay hearts on the packages sent to our oldest daughter in Southern California.
Super easy and it didn't cost me anything since I had a gift card.
Hope you're putting the final touches on your Valentine's Day plans.
