Here's a sweet craft for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day which the kids will enjoy - and it looks very pretty!
You will need:
Key ring fixing (optional - you could make this tied directly to a bag or pencil case zipper)
Heart-shaped cookie cutter (optional)
Three shades of thin ribbon
Roll out your clay. Cut out a heart shape using a cookie cutter or by cutting around a heart-shaped template. Decorate your heart with other colours of clay, and/or making patterns with modelling tools. Make a hole through the top with a toothpick, wriggling around to get a big enough hole. Bake according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Group your ribbons together, and tie them to the key ring fitting.
Plait (braid) the ribbons
Tie a knot towards the end of the ribbons, then thread on the heart plaque. Tie another knot to secure it in place. Leave the last inch or so of ribbon hanging loose.
