As promised I've got a tutorial for you! I guess now is the best time as this is a Christmasy project. I've used air drying Giotto clay as it's widely available and cheap, some pastry cutters, Christmasy stamps and acrylic paints.
Roll the clay flat and cut shapes. Stamp with different stamps. I've used snowflakes, stars, baubles etc. If you want to make hanging decorations remember to make tiny holes at the top of each shape when the clay is still wet and soft.
Close up of what is stamped into the clay.
The clay needs about 20 to 24 hours to dry. When left aside to dry remember to turn them upside down several times so that the clay dries on both sides. If you don't turn them they might disfigure a bit.
I made the holder below using acrylic blocks which are covered with clear double sided tape.
Painted Christmas trees.
BTW I stamped the shapes on one side only.
And the decorations finished of. :)
