Take some Creative Paperclay® modeling material and knead it lightly and roll into a skinny sausage to put into the frame mould. Roll another small piece of Creative Paperclay® modeling material into a ball and push into the bow frame.
After a couple of hours (Depending on your climate) push on the mould to release the ornament carefully and let dry over night maybe even 24 hours.
Once the ornament pieces are dry, colour them with some glazes, inks, or paints. Let the colour dry.
Trim the image if needed. Using some hot glue, adhere the bow to the frame. Adhere the string to the image at the top on the front. Glue the frame over the image making sure the string part stays hidden. Let dry.
