Make It Monday! Let's Make Shamrock Shortbread For Your Dolls!

Today for Make It Monday I have made my dolls some Shamrock Short Bread for their St. Patrick's Day Tea Party! To make your own you will need:
-Oven Bake Polymer clay. I used Sculpey Clay In White and Green (You can choose any color)
-Crinkle Cutter Rectangle from the Premo! Set found by clicking here
-Premo Mini Metal Cutters Holiday Shamrock Find it by clicking here
-Sculpey Tool set like the one shown here or a tooth pick
-Sculpey Work and Bake Mat or wax paper on an oven safe baking tray
-Oven Preheated to your clays directions, oven safe gloves

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and cover your work space. Pre heat your oven to the recommended setting on your clay.
Step 2- Open and work your lightest color of clay first. I rolled and patted mine by hand. Press it out and cut out your 4 "shortbread" cookies. Don't worry if you have a tiny bit left you can use that to make one round shortbread to enjoy or share with a dolly friend like I did.
Step 3- Once your four cookies are cut out. Work a small amount of green clay into a flat circle like mine. Use your small shamrock cutter to cut 4 (or 5 if you are doing a round cookie) and lay them in the middle of your shortbread. Press them gently into place.
Step 4- Use the pointed end of your tool to make the holes in your short bread.
Step 5- If you are using the work and bake mat you can place it and the tray in the oven to bake. If you are using paper you will have to transfer your cookies into place on a oven safe tray and then bake them.
Step 6- Bake them according to the directions on your clay, remove them from allow them to cool then they are ready to give to your dolls!
