I just LOVE finding new and versatile ways to use my Stampin’ Up! stamps and tools. This year I decided to try making salt dough tags to decorate my Christmas gifts.
The recipe I used needed:
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Simply mix together in a bowl, then knead on a floured surface until smooth. Roll out to desired thickness. I rolled out to approximately 1cm. Then simply ink up your favourite stamp and press into the dough. Cut around shape and lift onto tray lined with baking paper. I placed my dough stamped side down so that I could stamp the recipient’s name onto the back. The tags can then be either air-dried or baked in a very slow oven for several hours.
Often the dough will yellow a little if oven baked, which mine did. A second batch which I allowed to air dry stayed nice and white, although it did take a few days to dry out thoroughly.
I was so thrilled with my tags. I just love the beautiful Wonderful Blessing single stamp which matched my Nordic Christmas theme perfectly stamped in Real Red.
Happy creating for Christmas!
