I made a few things out of polymer clay (and other items) for my American Girl dolls:

Little jars of polymer clay food made from these empty model paint jars I found at the thrift store. There are corn, peas, peaches and tomatoes.  Added a little paint after they were cooked to the peaches and tomatoes to make them look more realistic.  Little circles of fabric were tied with ribbon over the lid just like the old days of canning.

A little swirly lollipop on a painted toothpick for the stick and a little bag I recycled.

I downloaded an image of a goldfish bag, printed and laminated it into a little pouch for the tiny goldfish made out of polymer clay.

This was made similar to the gold fish.  I wrapped each little peppermint candy in cellophane just like the real ones!

This one is my favorite!  I made a graham cracker box from dark blue thick scrapbooking paper and glued the box image on the front.  I cut out rectangles of corrugated cardboard to fit in the box and poked holes through them with a pin to look like real graham crackers.  The chocolate was made from clay and wrapped in foil, and the marshmallows are clay with a bag similar to the goldfish and peppermint candy bags.
OOOOhhhh, I just love tiny things!

Very nicely done! I especially like the peppermints (one of my favorite candies).

those are all very realistic.
