DIY Cookie Cutter Tray - Home & Family


1. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface, and sprinkle it with a little bit over baby powder

2. Roll a golf ball size, or a bit larger, of clay in your hands, and roll it with your hands until the clay becomes pliable

3. Use your hands to make the clay into a disk shape, if there are any lines from the parchment paper, remove the parchment paper from the top of the clay, and roll out with the rolling pin directly onto the clay.

4. Place the clay over the baby powder on top of the parchment paper, and sprinkle a bit more of the baby powder on the top of the clay.

5. Place another sheet of parchment paper over the top of the piece of clay, and use a rolling
pin to flatten out the clay to a little over 1/4 inch

6. Use the sharpe side of the cookie cutter to cut out desired shape

7. Then, remove the shape from the cookie cutter, and use the rolling pin to slightly roll the
shape a bit larger, making sure to do this evenly throughout the shape to not change the
shape. You want the clay to be about 1/4 inch thick

8. Place flattened shape over the rounded side of the cookie cutter on a baking sheet. The
center should dip inward like a bowl shape, use may need to use your fingers to slightly press
down to create this dip depending on the shape you are using.

9. Bake in the oven at 275 degrees for 15 minutes. If your clay is thicker than 1/4 inch, then it
will need to bake longer. Bake 15 minutes for each 1/4 inch.

10. When baked and cooled, remove clay from cookie cutter and gently sand the edges to get
rid of any roughness

11. Paint your favorite design using acrylic paints

12. When paint is dry, fill with jewelry!

*Tip, the clay won't spread or change shape, so if there are any lines, or undesired marks on
the clay, remove them before baking.
