Also posted here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2009/03/diy-wednesday-cupcake-locket.htmlWhat you need:
Strong polymer clay (I recommend Premo)
Texture sheets or rubber stamps
E6000 glueBefore you begin:
1. Condition the clay
2. Clean the locket. Wipe off any dirt and oils that may have been transferred from your hands.
*TIP: Work with the locket open. Every once in a while, check the hinges to ensure they remain clay-free.Instructions
Step 1. Make a clay ball.
Step 8. Add other embellishments (like the 2D cupcake from the previous tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291611.0
Step 9. Bake according to clay manufacturer's instructions. Read more.
Step 10. Repeat all steps for the reverse side if you wish.

Step 1. Peel off the clay from the locket.
Step 2. Apply a thin layer of E6000 glue to the clay.
