Also can be used for pendants and appliqués for trinket boxes, hair ornaments, refrigerator magnets and other crafts!

To make Kaleidoscope Butterfly or Heart pins (or pendants), you'll use basically the same method used to make mini sandwich cookies (see video).
Press a small amout of polymer clay into just the butterfly or heart in your Kaleidoscope Mold.
Tap it in, being sure to press it into the design thoroughly.
"Roll" the edges inward with your finger to make a neat edge.
Bake clay in the mold. Check the packaging for recommended temperature and times, which vary slightly
by manufacturer. Temperatures usually range between 230-275° F (110-135° C), 15 min. per quarter inch.
When cooled, flex the mold slightly to pop out the clay pieces.
Peel, then attach the pin back with it's adhesive strip.
Embellish with 'jewels' or acrylic paint.
For pendants: Use two halves and glue together with a small screw eye in between to thread the chain/cord/ribbon through.
You can also use these appliqués to decorate trinket boxes, hair ornaments, fridge magnets, etc.

You can also make cookies in the Kaleidoscope Butterfly Topper/cookie mold and the Kaleidoscope Heart cake/cookie/craft mold or the Unicorn cake/cookie/craft mold using basically the same method as above.
