Hey friends! Sometimes the simplest DIY projects are my favorites and this is the perfect example. This project doesn’t take much time, or money, and the result is something I’ll use over and over again for impromptu parties.
When we throw last minute parties we typically go for wine and cheese with one signature cocktail. In the past we’ve printed our own cheese labels, but I loved the idea of making a reusable set, with all our favorite cheeses! Supplies needed: Scupley clay, Martha Stewart Liquid Gilding (in Gold), a rubber stamp set in a small font, a paint brush and an oven.
Step 1: Use a knife to cut your Sculpey into slices. Stamp each slice with a name of a cheese. Be sure to include all your favorites, which is completely unique to you. For example, we always buy honey goat cheese, so I went ahead and made a special label just for that (it’s stinky, but SO good!).Step 2: Bake your Sculpey pieces in the oven at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Paint the pieces for Liquid Gilding. They will not be dishwasher safe, so always remember to hand wash them as needed. It’s crazy how easy it is to make these little guys! I’m thinking they would be a fun gift (along with some cheese and wine, of course!) for the next housewarming party we attend.
