my sister is coming to visit in about a month with her 2 year old kid. I want to make something but i havent made anything for a kid that young before so i dont really know what to make. I was thinking about making a toy but apparently her daughter has hundreds of toys so Im thinking it would be nicer to make something else. I'd appreciate any ideas you guys have.
those are the best christmas chocolates ever! We have them here in canada, so im sure the states as them as well. I really like that you chose to go as chocolates instead of the typical elf etc...im sure there was probably plenty of people dressed as those.
Its the kinda swap where i pair everyone together. you might send to more than one person if you say that you are willing to but thats really up to you. The link i posted shows you the questionnaire that you will fill out. if you're a giver, you tell me what you have to give like yarn or paper supplies etc...if you're a giver you tell me what craft supplies you need. Or you can do both since you can be a giver and a needer if you want, sometimes you have way too many supplies or leftovers for one craft, but need something for another.
you dont want to mix polymer clay and food items because it can be toxic. Since you used a cookie tray you should be able to wash it really well and it will be ok, but i wouldnt keep using it without laying down foil or something simular beforehand. When you wash it just make sure there are no bits of your clay left because that can be harmful. You can get trays super cheap from thrift stores or some dollar stores so you should invest in your own. When baking on a cookie pan the side touching it tends to get shiny, if its something you would want to avoid you can put a layer of baking soda down and it will protect the clay and dust right off when you're done baking. some people also put a small sheet of batting down which is fine with the low temp the clay bakes at.
if you end up using a pasta machine or something with more crevices they should never be used for food again since it cant be guarunteed that you've cleaned all the clay off. some could sneak down in the crevices then into the food if you cook with them again.
