Crown Fit for a Princess

I am so fascinated by Fascinators!!!  Since the Royal Couple are celebrating their first anniversary I thought it would be fun to create my own CROWN! 
I took about a quarter of the Creative Paperclay® from the bag. I spread the clay by hand out on transparencies.  Once it was pretty thin I used the rolling pin and shims to get a smooth surface on the Creative Paperclay®, about an 1/8 of an inch. Making sure it is long enough for the pattern. The crown is pattern I cut free  hand, measuring 11 inches in length.  Lay it on the Creative Paperclay®, with a cutting tool carefully cut around the edge of the pattern.    
Gently stamp the crown with swirls to give the crown decorative dimension. The set of stamps used are Viva Las Vegastamps! Swirl Plate# 1333.  With a little water create  slip on the two edges of the crown that need to be joined. Gently work the Paperclay® together at the seam.  Let it dry overnight.  Now the 
crown is ready to decorate!
