Use as a place set­ting by en­cir­cling your servi­ette and cut­lery, hang from a chair back, or wrap a wee gift. These handy clay tags can serve many pur­poses… and you could make them in var­i­ous shapes and sizes. Get cre­ative!

You’ll need:

• 1 cup Bak­ing Soda • 1/2 cup Corn Flour • 3/4 Cup Warm Wa­ter • Rolling Pin • Cookie Cut­ters • Straw or tooth­pick • Dec­o­rat­ing tools such as stamps/doilys etc

The method:

1. In a saucepan throw in all the in­gre­di­ents and stir well 2. Mix on a medium heat, stir­ring to avoid burn­ing, un­til the paste turns into a stiff play-dough type con­sis­tency 3. Re­move from heat and leave for a few min­utes to cool 4. Turn out on your work sur­face and knead un­til pli­able 5. Take pieces and roll to your de­sired thick­ness - these were about 5mm 6. Dec­o­rate at this stage by plac­ing a doily over the top and gen­tly rolling over with the pin or by press­ing with a stamp 7. Cut with your cookie cut­ter, then make a hole with the straw or tooth­pick and place on a bak­ing sheet 8. Leave overnight to dry or care­fully dry in a 100 de­gree cel­cius oven for up to an hour 9. Now you can paint them, dust them with chalk dust and even write on them
