Karen here and today I wanted to share with you one of my most favorite French Pastries you can may your on dolls. My oldest child and I love to sneak away to our local bakery and pick these up to enjoy on the walk back! I thought it would be fun to share how you can easily make your dolls these inexpensive dolly treats and share my quick and easy way to make the bakery display’s for your doll treats to sit on.
To make your own you will need:
- Tan, bronze or light brown Sculpey oven bake clay
- Tulip Brown Fabric Paint
- Oven safe baking sheet
- Craft knife
- Oven preheated to the directions on the package of your oven bake clay
- Oven mitt
Step 1- Assemble all your supplies listed above and preheat your oven.
Step 2- Work the clay between your hands and use your palm to flatten your clay into to 1/4 inch thick squares as shown in the photos above.
Step 3- Use your craft knife to make a square with your clay circles (save the cut away clay for later) then cut the square diagonally so that you create two triangles.
Step 4- Starting on the longest edge of your triangle roll it up towards the tip of the triangle as shone in the photos above. Then turn the ends in towards the center and place on your baking sheet. Continue to use the left over clay to create more Chocolate Croissants. Repeat these steps on all remaining clay triangles. If you have left over clay like I had you can press it out into little cookies! No use tossing it away! Once you have created all your Croissants bake them in your oven according to the directions on your clay. I baked mine 20 minutes.
Step 5- Once your croissants have been baked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Open and squeeze out some of your Tulip paint over the croissants as shown in the photos above! Don’t forget to do the cookies too! ** Allow your paint to dry. I left mine over night. You don’t want to get paint on your dolls!
Once dry it is time to sever and display your treats!
To make the bakery displays you will need:
- Lids from Frozen Orange Juice or the ends of Pillsbury Rolls (these work best as the edges are not sharp!)
- The lids from soda pop bottles or milk or juice containers
- Glue dots
Step 1- Find the center of your largest lid. Place the glue dot in the center. Place the flat end of the soda pop lid against the glue dot .
Step 2- Turn your display over and start on the next one. Then display with your Dolly Fresh Chocolate Croissants!
I hope you enjoyed today’s Craft Tutorial and I look forward to sharing more ideas with you again soon!
