Minion Bookmarks, ID Tags, zipper pulls, and more.
If you love the Minion characters this is the project "Para tu"... which in Minionese (as well as Spanish) means "for you". Surprise your young Minion fans by sending them back to school with these adorable characters working as back pack zipper pulls, ID tags, bookmarks and more. Make them the appropriate size for your Item and add handwritten names, etc. on them with a permanent marker. After baking in your kitchen oven for only 30 minutes, they cool to a flexible substance that won't crack or shatter if dropped. Thick or thin, they're so easy and fun to make. Go to Google images to find different Minion characters to guide you in creating the facial attributes for your project.
step 1 - Condition the Sunshine yellow clay. The amount you will need will be determined by the size item you are creating. For my bookmark I used one ounce. Because it was a bookmark, I rolled my clay thinner than I would for other projects -on the # 3 setting of my Sculpey machine. All the overlapping pieces were rolled paper thin to minimize the thickness of the bookmark.
step 11 - Condition and roll the denim clay. The piece should be wide enough and long enough to cover the bottom half of the minion.
Step 15 - Place the project in a 275 degree oven on a foil lined baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Allow the minion to cool completely.
