DIY: Air Dry Clay Gift Tags

Air dry clay is simple, easy to use, and cheap material, which is always a winning combination. You use it once and you will be forever scrolling through Pinterest for more innovative DIYs to try your hands at. Today I thought I would share with you a very easy peasy gift tag DIY to give your wrapping a truly magical Pinterest feel. As much as I adore air dry clay it can be a bit irritating waiting for your handmade goodies to dry so a great alternative would be to use polymer clay.
