Christmas Clay Tags

I love Christmas,
I love getting creative and choosing gifts for people.
I love to give thoughtful gifts
and I try really hard to find something special for every one.

I have almost finished my Christmas shopping and I only have a handful of gifts left to get.
I do know what I am buying so it shouldn't take long at all.

Before I left for my week in Sydney I managed to make all of the clay tags (as well as a few more ornaments for the tree) and left them to dry.
I used the same air dry clay as last year.
You can read my brief tutorial here

Yesterday I got my new Christmas stamps out and my black ink (wish I had some red ink) and stamped away.

I was a little disappointed as some of the tags weren't quite flat so the imprint didn't work out properly but I was able to use most of them.


A little red and white bakers twine and voila!


I bought a pack of brown bags from wrap write and used some Christmas paper to decorate them, then I added my clay tags.

What do you think? Did they turn out ok?

Wishing you all a great week.

Hopefully I will be back in a few days with some photos of our Christmas decorations.


PS.  Thank you to all my wonderful  friends  for all of the lovely Birthday wishes. I had a great day. Hubby drove to Sydney to pick me up and take me to Ikea for some shopping. I was very spoilt and my wonderful son made me pancakes for breakfast on Saturday. Love those birthdays that just seem to keep going.

    Your tags and bags look fabulous! I have made some mini garland using that same air clay. A bit of fun x

  4. Very pretty Nellie, I still have some tags I made from last year that survived and are on the tree again this year. They are not as nice as yours though. ;-)

  5. And here I thought we were creative for recycling our old Christmas cards and making tags! These are beautiful! I might have to try this for next year!
