PaperClay "Refrigerator Magnet"

Good morning all-

Today I would like to welcome you to another Creative Paperclay project.  I have been having such a great time making things and experimenting with all different types of projects using paper clay.  Today I am showing you how to make a refrigerator magnet.

I rolled out my paper clay

 I cut a strip approximately 1 inche wide by about 12 inches long.  It really depends on how big you want your ribbon to be.
 I then formed the ribbon.  I had to cut a bit out of the inside so that it didn't bunch up when forming
 After the ribbon was formed I did add a bit of white glue to the strip to keep it in place.  I also textured the ribbon with an outside edge.
 After it dried I basecoated it in a white glossy acrylic paint.  Then after that dried I painted the ribbon pink.  Do you see the texture a bit better here?
 I attached a piece of magent to the back of the ribbon and now I can hang it on my refrigerator.
 Isn't it just cool?  I might add the word "Hope" to the ribbon with vinyl.  Let me know what you think.
You can purchase Creative Paperclay here or you can even get it at Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

I hope I've inspired you to use your paperclay or to try your hand at it.  It's fun and addicting for sure.
