Kids Handmade Christmas Decorations

Its always fun to do some sort of Christmas craft with the kids. Whether its baking, making cards, decorations or Ginger bread houses...(btw, i need a good recipe for them) they just love getting in the Christmas Spirit. This year, I saw in the Dec10 issue,
  Ceramic Decorations!
 They are so so easy and definitely kid friendly!! 

We made ours for gifts for loving Grandparents and friends and had a few left over to decorate our tree.

Wanna make some??
White Air Dry Clay (Spotlight $14.95 kg), Cookie Cutters,
 Lettering Stamps (Kikki K or Riot Craft), Ribbon....
and a few household items...Baking paper, Rolling pin, Bamboo Skewer etc..

Roll out clay onto baking paper.. 
Use your cookie cutters to cut shape. 
Use your Stamps to make words or message. 
Use a bamboo skewer to make a hole big enough for ribbon.
 Smooth out edges...and allow to dry (bout 24hrs)
Tie Ribbon...

and....YOUR DONE!! 
The kids had alot of fun! 

We made about 15 decorations and used half the give you an idea how far it goes. 

Instead of wrapping them up, I think i will use them as a hanging tag on my Christmas packages this year!
I think they will add a nice touch,  they make the Perfect Label AND a  Handmade Pressie to cherish and keep. xx
