DIY Clay Gift Tags |

I love thinking up ways to make my wrapped gifts special. The wrapping can be almost a present by itself! Make a bunch of these clay tags and have them ready for when for those late night gift wrapping sessions. They'd also be handy for when you're running out the door at the last minute and need to bundle up a hostess gift!

Here's what you'll need:

DIY Clay Gift Tags |
  • Premier Air-Dry Clay
  • Wax Paper 
  • Rolling pin
  • Cardstock tag templates. Mine were 1.5" x 2" and 1.5" x 3"
  • Xacto knife
  • Small cookie cutters or scrap pieces of cardstock to make your own
  • Baker's twine
  • Liquid Gold Leaf
  • Paint brush
  • Permanent marker or letter stamps and ink pad

Roll out a ball of clay with a rolling pin in between two layers of wax paper. Aim for about 1/8" thick. Lay the cardstock template over the clay and cut around it with the xacto knife.

Punch out a hole at the top of each using a pen cap or something similar. Cut the star shapes. If you don't have cookie cutters small enough (I didn't) just accordion fold a strip of cardstock 10 times. Glue both ends together. Ta-da! A star cutter that will last you for about 8-10 uses before it starts to fall apart. Perfect for this kind of job and it was free! Smooth out any rough edges with your fingers. Let dry on a drying rack for a few hours. I just left mine overnight.

Paint the edges with the liquid gold leaf and let dry. Stamp or write names on the tags. Tie up with baker's twine and add to your pretty packages! They look great layered! DIY Clay Gift Tags | DIY Clay Gift Tags | DIY Clay Gift Tags |

  8. It seems like a fun and easy project that would make a great personalized touch to any gift. I especially like the idea of using retro bowl liquid gold leaf to paint the edges of the tags for a touch of elegance.
