playing with clay

These clay tags are a fun, easy project. All you really need is a few cookie cutters and air dry modeling clay. If you've worked with clay before you can most likely go at this on your own without instructions. I had never worked with clay so I downloaded a little tutorial from my favorite blogger, Sarah from A Beach Cottage.

The next several photos I took with my iPhone instagram app during the process so I apologize for their poor quality. On a side note: I love the convenience of that app for shooting and sharing pictures quickly.

I had fun shopping for cookie cutters but didn't have any luck finding the right size circle. So I used the lid from an empty spice jar for my circles. It actually worked pretty well.

I would love to buy an alphabet stamping set like this one so i could stamp fun words or names on them!

The clay takes a while to air dry and I am not the most patient.

But it was worth the wait!

I think they turned out really cute!

I'm still on the hunt for fun cookie cutter shapes so if you have a good resource I'd love to know.

P.S. Those pretty daisies were free - I picked them off the side of the road :)
P.P.S Here is a direct link to Sarah's tutorial. And check out her blog while you're over there. Seriously, my favorite of all time.

And of course, I had to link this post up for Sarah's Good Life Wednesday!
