There A Me rry Christinas at Home As Christmas approaches, the family oven will be filled with more than tasty cookies and cakes. Another type gift has caught on. This is a do-it-yourself play clay bit where the home designer turns out jewelry, mosaics or candlesticks. Here are some gift ideas using play clay: How about making play clay storage containers for curlers or buttons? You start with a large coffee or lard can. Cover the base with tinted clay, moistening to smooth the surface as you put the clay on. Also cover the can lid with the clay. Press any identifying decor such as a hair curler or rickrack on the side or lid. Cover clay with shellac. You may want to add rickrack or ribbon on the lid. Here is a recipe for your play clay: Blend thoroughly in a saucepan with a fork two cups of baking soda (1 one-pound package) and one cup corn starch. Add 1V4 cups of cold water all at once and mix until smooth. Bring this to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil the mixture approximately 1 minute or until the mixture resembles moist mashed potatoes. Transfer mixture to a plate and cover with a damp cloth. Let it stand until cool enough to knead, then roll it out and cut with cookie cutters or bot- will be a Christmas party on each floor, with gifts for all.

One of the local Girl Scout troops helping the Jayccc- ettcs with the 1967 Christmas ' Seal campaign by folding letters and sheets of stamps and stuffing them in envelopes for mailing was Junior Troop 80 from St. Lawrence Church. Shown above at a work meeting are (first row, left to right) Debbie Collison, Kristy —Staff Photo Hall, Margaret Hawks, Laura Otto, Shelley Bennett, Laura Ramaeker, Jane Bernholtz and Kristy Kanne; (back row, left to right) Patty Schmitz, Diane Casey, Geri Frank, Vicki Bernholtz, Debbie Greteman, Kathy Heffernan, Noreen Ryan, Sheryl Broich, Joan Collison and Julie Textor. Mrs. Harold Hall is troop leader. tie caps or mold freehand to desired shapes or apply it to a container to cover. Thin pieces of the clay harden overnight but thicker pieces take longer. To hasten the hardening, place the clay on a wire rack in a warm (350-degree) turned-off oven. When dry, paint the clay object with empora or tempera or water colors. Finish it by dipping the pieces into clear shellac, spraying it with clear plas- tic or brushing it with clear nail polish. Teen-agers especially will like to make bracelets, rings and medallions for friends this way. For a larger batch of clay, use 1 one-pound package of corn starch, 3 one-pound packages of baking soda and 1 quart of water. Make as above. Store leftover clay in a plastic bag until you want to finish your projects. * sc BRIG GIFT ml^r In JP^^^.

So,, if you're invited to a Danish - American home during this holiday season, be sure to accept the cookies offered. Tie Presents With Vivid New Yarns Wrapping gift packages is half the fun of Christmas giving. Many women become so adept at creating elegant or whimsical designs that, the receivers hesitate to spoil the effect. A new twist for Christmas '67 is the use of vivid colored yarns as gift ties. These are co-ordinated with wrapping papers in bright blues, purples, pinks and orange. Traditionalists aren't overlooked. There are reds and greens. For those who like fresh ideas, take a tip from Mrs. Jeannette Lee. As design director for a greeting card and gift wrap firm, she dabbles in all sorts of wrapping tricks. Mrs. Lee points out, though, thai the first step is to co-ordinate colors of the papers and yarn so the finished package will be artistic-looking. Always include a matching tag or enclosure card with each gift. Nothing confuses a person as unnecessarily as h a v i n g to guess who gave them a gift. When using yarn you will need white liquid glue and scissors. Clear a work area and allow enough room to spread out wrapping supplies so you can see them at a glance without having to dig under a pile of objects. For a completely new Christmas package character, try a turtle. He'll catch the eye of a child. For a turtle, it is best to trace an oval shape on gift paper and coil the yarn on the oval, gluing it down until the area is filled. Wrap a little ball of yarn around a wad of paper for the head and tie little knots for eyes. GIVE YOUR WIFE A THOUSAND EASY WASHDAYS FOR CHRISTMAS! NOW - AT SPECIAL PURCHASE SALE PRICES!
