Numbered Clay Tags

I saw some cute clay tags made by Vintage Sky
I thought I'd try them with my own spin.




I started out with some white, air drying clay.



This started out as a mother-daughter project.

We rolled out the clay...



and used a medicine cup to cut out little circles.


  

We smoothed the edges...


  



And used a straw to cut little holes in the clay.







While the clay was still wet we used a stencil and black craft paint to add numbers to the clay.




We used a stamp to make some of the tags with a fleur de lis and the word Paris.



(This was right about the time I lost my
12 year old helper, she found something better to do...)

Now to add texture to the tag I pressed a piece of fabric into the clay while it was still damp.


 

 I put them on a drying rack and let them dry overnight.



In the morning I gave the tags a spray of Perma Clear Acrylic, front and back, for protection. 

Then I added the string.



I went around the house tying these tags to different things to give you an idea of great places you might want to hang a tag.



On a candle...



On a trellis...



On an old book...



To decorate a bowl...



or on a tea pot...

And my personal favorite, on baskets...
