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)


 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”!

  1. 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.

  2. I love when someone introduces me to a great product. Thanks for all the ideas; can’t wait to see what else you come up with in the future. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

  3. Good morning! I missed this post the first time around. Glad I found it this time! I am going to be doing some of these for a gift exchange and love how yours turned out. Have a great day.


  4. What a cool idea! Love these 🙂

  5. 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.


  6. 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.

  7. I love these. Thanks for sharing how to make them!
