DIY Clay Letter Gift Tags with Sculpey

Hands down, without a question, one of my absolute favorite craft supplies is oven-bake clay!! I have been using Sculpey clay for years in projects like these jewelry dishes, charms, drink stirrers, terrazzo boxes, and even a giant envelope wall… just to name a few. I am excited to be working with Sculpey to share with you their Souffle clay to make these gorgeous and personalized DIY Clay Letter Gift Tags.
Sometimes giving a gift becomes overwhelming to the point that it takes the joy of the gift-giving away. We focus on how much we are spending, if they are going to like it, but in reality, it really is the effort put into the thought. My most cherished gifts are ones that are not only thoughtful but also very personal. I came up with an idea to do homemade personal DIY Clay Letter Gift Tags because I have been trying to figure out gifts for so many people. We just moved and I wanted to bring something to our new neighbors, my mother-in-law has been so helpful with our move to the new house that I wanted to give her something as a thank you, my mom has been sending me so many things to help decorate my new house, I have friends who have helped watch my kids while we were moving. I’m telling you, it takes a village. What do you get for people who already have everything AND don’t want to store more “things?”
My solution is actually in the gift tag. Whether you decide to buy some flowers, a bottle of wine, or practically any gift, I have come up with a way to outshine any gift by making the gift tag even more special. This gift tag is not only personal because it’s the letter of their name but you can add your own artistic touch, or for those who aren’t so crafty, you can keep it simple.
Make it meaningful! There is something so beautiful and sacred about handwriting. I love adding the personal touch of signing your name on the back of the letter or even writing your favorite quote! It makes it so much more special.
The best part about this craft is that it’s super customizable! It all starts with Sculpey Souffle Clay. This clay is soft and flexible, so it’s easy to work with but it’s also strong and will hold detail. If you like making beads then this is definitely one to try out! The Souffle clay has a beautiful faux suede finish once it’s baked, so it will make your gift tag look extra fancy. I also love that it will stay soft until you bake it and you don’t have to worry about it getting dried out. PLUS it’s safe and non-toxic. Basically we just checked off all the boxes with everything we are looking for in a perfect oven-bake clay for a number of projects.
