Scrapbooking with Polymer Clay:
Peanut Butter & Jelly

A Tutorial

                                    Peanut Butter & Jelly

My 7 year old makes peanut butter and honey sandwiches everyday for her school lunch.  When I discovered the “peanut butter” rubber stamp at StampMagick I knew I had to create a page featuring Sarah and her lunch routine!  I hope it helps you capture a chapter in your child’s life for all time.

To make lettering:

Peanut Butter Lettering
1. Mix together equal parts of ecru and gold clays.  If desired add a bit of Granitex brown for a textured look.  Roll mix out in the pasta machine from #1setting through #4 setting.  Lay sheet of clay on work surface (Fig. 1).
Fig. 1

2. Stamp the saying “Peanut, Peanut Butter…and Honey (or jelly)!” using the Bouncing Letters rubber stamp set and the dark brown fluid chalk. Note: “and” can be stamped using the Bouncing letters set, a smaller set of stamps (1/2” letters are shown) or an “&” symbol.

3. Cut out each letter using the square cutter.  Set aside extra clay.

4. Place letter tiles on a baking surface and bake for 30 minutes at 275 degrees.  Cool letters under a heavy book to insure they are flat. Note: An optional touch: For a shiny letter surface brush baked letter tiles with a thin layer of Translucent Liquid Sculpey, then rebake.

To make “Man cannot live by bread alone":
"Man can not live alone"

Fig. 2

1. Roll remaining blend (from above) through pasta machine from #1 setting through #4 setting.  Lay clay sheet on your work surface.

2. Ink the "Man cannot live by bread alone..." rubber stamp with dark brown fluid chalk. Stamp the clay sheet. Cut around the inked image using the wavy blade.
(Fig. 2)

3. Blend equal amounts of gold and black Premo clays (about ¼ block each).  Roll through pasta machine from a #1 setting through #4 setting.  Lay clay sheet on your work surface.

4. Cut strips lengthwise with the wavy blade.  Lay one strip on each side of the saying, matching up the wavy shape.  Cut top and bottom edges away.

5. Lay a wavy strip along the top and bottom of the saying, matching up the wavy shape.  Cut the ends off leaving a bit of clay overhang on each corner.

6. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes.  Cool.
