Make a Decorative Candle/Jar/Bowl Lid with Polymer Clay

Do you have a cool bowl, jar or candle with no lid? I do..actually I have many.  Wouldn't they be better with lids?  Right!  So let's fix that!

For this instructable, I made a decorative lid from polymer clay for my candle.  I hate dusty candles AND, when I'm done burning the candle, I can clean out my jar and have a nifty trinket box :)

Step 1: Gather Materials

In addition to the cool candle, jar, bowl or whatever you want to add a lid will need:

-Polymer Clay
-Wax Paper
-X-acto knife or Straight Razor (scissors may be substituted for some can probably use a knife for others)
-Texture Media (Stamps, Cloth, Stones, Sticks..whatever you have that has some cool texture you want to impress in your clay)
-Ruler or Tape Measure (2 Rulers if you have them..if not, we will discuss options later)
-Wax Paper
-Cardboard (I recycled a shipping box)
-Glue Stick
-Sturdy Cylinder for rolling clay (Acrylic Roller, Rolling Pin, PVC Pipe, Vacuum Extension Tube..whatever you have to roll the clay out) Even better would be a pasta machine dedicated to clay.
-Pencil or Pen
-Small bit of thin craft wire (optional for butterfly antenna)
