Gift Tag Ornaments

We had three birthday parties this weekend which means I had ornaments to make.  When my daughter started going to birthday parties I started making all of her friend’s gift tag ornaments.  I have been told by parents they love it and want me to keep doing it.  Booga had a birthday party this weekend for one of his little buddies (two peas in a pod for sure), I decided to keep the tradition going with Booga’s friends as well.  I remembered to photograph two of the three ornaments and considering I only missed one I thought that was not bad at all.

The ornaments were created with Super Sculptey (an oven baked polymer clay) and painted with acrylic craft paint.  My kids wrote To: and From: on the back with a Silver Sharpie Marker – I wrote the date.   I sealed each with an acrylic sealant, so the paint wouldn’t chip and the To and From would be protected as well.

Usually my kids help with these but I realized the day of that I forgot so I did them with the polymer clay and made them.
