What's Cookin"

Hi eveyone, it's November and our focus this month at Unruly PaperArts is "Make & Bake"... hummm you say, what could that mean??? Well this month we'll  focus on any products you use to make/bake items/embellishments in your crafting using FIMO, MOLD PUTTY, MOLDING CLAY, MELT ART, RESINS, SHRINK PLASTICS etc.
I'm getting geared up for the holidays and starting on my gift boxes.  This month at Unruly our sponsor is AMAZING CRAFTING PRODUCTS which is the maker of Amazing Mold Putty. This product is so easy to use and so versatile. In the molds you can use, clay, hot glue, UTEE,  resin, plaster, wax, chocolate, soap and the list goes on and on. 
I chose to use UTEE in my molds and create some pretty angel wings for my gift box. Simple and so effective. While I was heating up the UTEE I also decided to dip my poinsettias in the hot goodness and this created a faux crystal-like flower... So pretty. I will be entering this piece in the following challenges:

Check out my SNAPGUIDE tutorial for step x step procedure on this project. 
Check out How to Make Embellishments Using UTEE & Magic Mold Putty by Toni Burks-Grijalva on Snapguide.

Keeping with the make and bake theme I also decided to make some candy canes with SCULPTY clay to dress up my windows on my gingerbread house. The gingerbread house holds a mini album which is specifically for my holiday baking pictures.  
 Santa is even coming down the chimney in this house.

This was such a fun project, loads of techniques and I can't wait to start putting my pictures in the mini album. Hope you enjoyed this post. Be sure to check out the November issue at Unruly throughout the month there will be some AMAZING projects and tutorials provided by the design team to inspire your holiday crafting. And join in on this month's RAQ (Readers Art Quest) which is "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and link up and you could possibly win something from AMAZING CRAFTING PRODUCTS.  I will be entering this piece in the following challenges:
