Satisfy your sweet tooth without the calories! Make a Polymer Clay Chocolate Chip Cookie Barrette from Candace Jedrowicz and show off your sweet style. Polymer clay crafts are a great way to express your creativity and save money at the same time.
- Barrette blank
- Pasta machine or rolling pin
- Glossy sealer and small paint brush
- Polymer clay
- To create cookie dough color: Three parts yellow polymer clay to one part each white, dark brown and orange. The foreground shows the dough color measured into six portions. You’ll need to make a larger batch to cover the barrette and make the cookies, so make double what you think you need. You’ll need to reserve a small ball of the dark brown for the chips.
- Roll out half the dough colored clay to about 1/8″. Cut a strip to go all the way around the barrette. Smooth it out to help the clay attach to the barrette.
- Wrap it all the way around and smooth the front. Slice the cookie dough and form the cookies by rolling each piece into a ball and flatten. Add as many tiny dark brown chips as you like pushing gently to attach.
- Line the cookies up and decide how you want them arranged. There are holes on the ends of the barrette, so push a tiny ball of clay over the holes on the underside of the barrette so it attaches to the bottom of the cookies on the end.
- If you’d like to take a “bite” out of a cookie, just use a needle tool to pull off small bits and shape the grooves. Bake according to the clay directions.
- After baking, touch each of the chips with a tiny bit of glossy sealer.
