How we did it:

Materials List

  1. air dry clay
  2. paint
  3. buttons
  4. pipe cleaners
  5. rolling pin (or cup or can)
  6. plastic knife (or butter knife)
  1. Gather your materials and protect your workspace. The hardest part is deciding what to make!

  2. For a custom name tag that you can hang on a backpack, tote bag, or even a gift, start by rolling out the clay so that it is 1/8� thin. You can use a rolling pin, can or even a cup.

  3. Using a plastic knife (you may need grownup help), cut a shape out of the clay. Once your design is final, use a pipe cleaner to gently poke a hole in the clay so you can hang it. Let it dry overnight.

  4. Once your charm is dry, paint your name or design on it. You can also paint some of the buttons.

  5. Finally, string some buttons on a pipe cleaner. Loop it through your charm. Next time, make a charm you can hang from a pipe cleaner necklace, or a tag you can tie to a birthday gift.
