Visions of Sugarplums Giveaway Day 1

Hello, hello, hello!
I'm so happy to be participating again this year in the ever fabulous...

There are going to be tons of incredibly useful holiday tips, tricks, ideas, inspirations, recipes and wonderful giveaways and prizes.  So please check back each day at Choux Choux Paper Art to find out who's playing and where to go.

I have for you a little photo tutorial showing how to make handmade S'more ornaments for the tree.
Begin by molding Sculpey clay into marshmallow shapes. Salvage sticks from your yard and skewer the faux marshmallows.  Place into the oven at 275 degrees and bake for roughly 30 minutes. I would check periodically depending on the size of your desired marshmallow.
While they are baking you can cut out the Graham Crackers and Chocolate.  I used old BINGO cards for the Graham Cracker and cork for the chocolate and painted each with TH paints. Make sure to punch holes in the centers of them so that the sticks go through for easy hanging.
Once the marshmallows are cooled, the fun of painting begins. I used TH distress paints for all of these and added a little 'charred' look to them. Snow Tex was used for the bubbling marshmallow look.
I hot glued the pieces all together and then decorated their little tops for cuteness on the Christmas tree. 
And guess what?  This set of S'more ornaments I am giving away!
