What an easy and simple way to make a present seem extra special.
By pressing a doily into the the clay surface, I created a patterned and textured surface. I also had lots of cookie cutters in different shapes which were perfect for this job. Using a drinking straw, I create a small hole which I later used to thread ribbon through once dried.
I then found this metal butterfly hair pin to create an imprint. The possibilities are truly endless. It surprising what you can find and use around the house.
Plants and flowers can also be great to create a natural imprint in the clay! Below are lots other everyday objects and materials that I used to create different ornaments, including, BUTTONS!
