You may remember last year I discovered Air dry clay and made some ornaments for my daughters’ school fair. I was then given the VonShef Cookie Cutter with Personalised Letterpress Stamp Embosser and I thought I could make Air dry clay ornaments with the letter press.¬†

After rolling out a quarter of the pack onto a flat surface (my poor dining table), I used my rolling pin to roll it out. I used a mixture of cookie cutters and the set to cut them out. I used a straw to make a hole at the top.

You then need to leave them to dry, turning them a few times to make sure they don’t curl up at the edges.

Like before, the edges were a bit rough and needed a light sand with a fine sandpaper. Here they are finished with a ribbon!

I then decided to try out making little dishes. I used the set and cut out hearts stamped with Joyeux Noel and starts stamped with Merci. I put them on a muffin tin to dry so they would dry curved.
