Making Christmas Bright: DIY Clay Gift Tags


When I saw these ceramic tags on the Anthropologie website I really liked them, but I'm not going to pay $3 per package to add one to each gift.  If you're giving away 20 present and you put one of each that'd be $60 plus tax and shipping.

I decided to try to find something that would look similar and would meet my wrapping needs.  I think I came up with one that will do both.


Before we can get to the creating, we have to make the clay.  Now, you could buy clay at the art store, but seeing that the main reason for making these gift tags is to save money, that option didn't seem like a good idea.

This is the recipe I came up with.









After the tags have cooled decorate however you want to.  Use markers, paints, stamps...whatever you like.  I would suggest sealing the tags with a clear coat of paint.

Here's a few more pictures of the finished product.



Make sure to check back this week.  I'll show you how you can use your clay gift tags.

  4. Czechoslovakia has played two finals without winning
    (1934 and 1962). At the end of the 2011-12
    season AC Milan and the mega rich Paris Saint German came to
    an agreement of a €20 million transfer fee, taking his total transfer fees for €180 million, a record that still stands.
    His conduct didn't pass unnoticed by the UEFA that has banned him from three games,
    after considering inappropriate his statements about Barcelona having won their semifinals confrontation thanks
    to the referees' influence.

  5. With the anticipation of rising sludge generation, Global - Data expects power generation to
    reach 3,845 GWh by 2020 from 3,020GWh in 2011. If these procedures are not followed, indoor air quality
    could pose a health concern both for the carpet cleaner and
    those at the residence or business. In wastewater treatment, a
    p - H control system that uses a programmable p - H
    controller and p - H probe to proportionally control the flow of
    carbon dioxide injection decreasing the p
    - H from a basic level to a programmable set point, can substantially streamline any p - H adjustment process.
