How To Make Super Simple Clay Christmas Gift Tags
You will need:

- Rolling Pin
- Cookie Cutter
- Gold Pen
How To Make Painted Clay Decorations:
Cut off a lump of clay from your packet and knead until it can be easily rolled out. Be sure not to knead too much as the clay can become quite sticky and will more than likely stick to your surface.
Use any choice of cookie cutter to cut your shape and carefully remove. Poke a little hole and set aside to dry. It’s quite common with air dry clay for the edges to be a little rough; you can smooth those with sandpaper after it dries.
Allow your tags to dry fully before you attempt to paint, or you will destroy the nibs of your pen or your paint brush. Trust me!
Once dry, decorate and doodle.
Once paint or ink has dried, you can use your gold thread to string up and add your little decorative bead.
