Crayola Air-Dry Clay


Easy project for clay tags, no baking required.

I’m sure this Air Dry Clay has been around forever and I know there have been many things made with it.  This is my first time using it, but not my last! (Follow directions on container)

Supplies:

 I rolled the clay in to balls, then flattened with the rolling pin.  Use biscuit/cookie cutters for desired shape.

I used several different stamps, including alphabet.  If you mess up, just squeeze into a ball, roll out, cut and stamp over.  As many times as needed.  I used a stampin up tool to put a hole in the top, use what ever you have for desired size. These have been drying for 2 days, I did not paint mine, but you can.

Look what I made and I still have a lot of clay left over!

Tags for little flower pots.

Tags to wrap around metal buckets

Tags for hostess gifts.

Tags for napkin rings.

Tags for Christmas Gifts.

If you’re getting a gift from me, it may have a little clay tag on it.

Or maybe you’ll receive a clay tag as a gift!

Here are some other clay tags that I found:

B & B’s Nest

Buckets Of Burlap

Come On Ilene

I’m sure there’s more, but I’ll let you find them!

I’ll be at my grandson’s birthday party next week. I’ll be having fun with my daughter during the day and running with the boys at night.  I have a couple of things that will post, and I’ll visit everyone when I get back.  Thanks for all your comments!  And one more shout out “Happy Birthday today to my sister Joyce”!

    I just had to see what you made… and those are super cute. I guess I have been out of the crafting loop, I didn’t have a clue what that product was. Learned something new today and it’s only 7:24 am. I can go back to bed now then right? Enjoy your family time =)

    I’ve seen these in Etsy shops but had no idea they were so easy. The secret is to get great stamps! I think I see a project in my future. Have a wonderful time with your family. How fun.

    Does anyone know if the clay be be “resoftened”. I found some in my daughter’s closet from a project she did a couple of years ago.
    Thanks!

    Hi! I bought this clay in hopes of doing the same thing but I had SO MUCH trouble with it. It stuck to everything and I couldn’t get the cut (from a cookie cutter) shapes up without squidging the shape. I couldn’t peel the clay away from the outside of the cookie cutters OR get the shape up. It really was a huge mess and a massive disaster!!!

    Any tips!?

      I sent you an email with a link to a video that shows the product in use. I would return your product, as it sounds like there is something wrong with it. I hope this helps.

      Thanks,
      Debbie

    Wow, these turned out really well :) I used clay for some of my DIY ornamnents this year too. I prefer the finish of yours though so I think I need to find myself some of the crayons brand.
