Crafting -Day Two

Well it is a light crafting day here because I am also packing to go up to my cousin's wedding which is this Saturday, but I did make a few gift tags using Mitsy's awesome Metal Letter Stamp Tutorial

I will definitely be making more for the holidays, just as soon as I get some appropriate cookie cutters. I don't really bake cookies, let alone shaped cookies, so my assortment to choose from was kind of meager (and this is AFTER I took a couple of my family members cookie cutters):




I love all the fun shapes, but I need some Christmas tree type deals for the holidays I think. I still need to play around with how thick the clay is before I stamp, as a couple of them were a bit too thin, but all in all they are pretty great! I also like that they can double as ornaments for the tree after they have served their gift tag purpose. Here is what I've done so far:



And before you think, "is she actually so crazy as to make gift tags for dogs?!" Yes. I am. But my dogs, and the dogs of our immediate family members, always get a present or two. This year I think it is new collars and ID tags. See, I'm not too crazy :)

(Oh. Mitsy, did you see you have a tag there? That is for YOUR future Secret Christmas present! he he he)

I would definitely recommend trying out this tutorial. I thought it was a lot of fun, and I think kids would really get a kick out of it too. The possibilities are endless as to what you can do with them, and if  you have a bandaged up banged up finger like moi, you can still make something pretty without too much effort of your left hand.  Enjoy!

I can't wait to make more of these tags Mitsy. Just need some better cookie cutter shapes! Only two of these cookie-cutter shapes belonged to me, one of which is the doggie! I love that one to death! :)

Thanks for posting such a fun tutorial!!
