A Great Way To Make Your Gifts More Personal

I am part of a group of friends that gets together to celebrate our birthdays and we usually bring a small gift. I often bring handmade gifts or an item that I have spruced up. I was thinking that most people like to get a plant and that it would great to add a little something to decorate the pot. It was so easy to decorate this clay pot with a ribbon and a little clay tie on.

To color the Simply Pressed clay, I added a few drops of Crumb Cake refill to the a small amount of clay and kneaded it until the color was even.

Roll out the clay to form a disc shape. I rolled mine between some freezer paper with the coated side to the inside.

Cut out shape with a round cutter. I used a bottle cap that was the size I wanted.

Stamp the clay with a stamp and ink. Notice I also made a hole so I could hang the piece.
