Make your baby shower extra special with these adorable baby shower favor pins that guests can wear at the party and then take home. It’s a great way to reveal the baby’s gender too – package ‘em up and mail them out to friends and family. Or use these DIY medallions as gift toppers for the expectant mom-to-be at the shower.
You will need: cookie cutters, polymer clay, rolling pin, awl (or other object that can be used for carving), pin backs, craft or super glue
Directions: Roll polymer clay into a ball to warm it up and make it easier to roll out with a rolling pin. Roll out the clay into a thin slab about 1/4 inch thick. Use a circle cookie cutter to create the base, along with two small, long strips of clay. Attach the two strips to the back of the circle by scoring the back and pressing down lightly. Flip back over and set aside. Next, roll out another piece of clay in a contrasting color to the same 1/4 inch thickness and use cookie cutter animals to create the piece that will lay on top of the clay ribbon base. Lightly score the back of the animal that you cut out and attach it to the front of the ribbon base. Bake in the over according to instructions. Once completely cool, flip the entire piece over and glue on a pin back using craft or super glue. Wait for the glue to completely dry before using.
