Stamped gift tags
Home-made gift tags give every present that personal, caring touch.
Whether it’s for a wedding, a birthday or just because – these pretty stamped FIMO tags in delicate colours will delight anyone receiving your gift. It’s quite simple: just roll out your FIMO, cut it out, stamp it, harden it – and you’re done!

Roll out a block of FIMO in your chosen colour into a sheet using the acrylic roller.
Tip: Work directly on baking paper so that you don’t have to detach your design from the surface it is on and can put it in the oven without damaging it.
Then arrange the letters. Press the stamp into the FIMO shape and use the bead piercing needle to prick out a hole to hang the tag from.
Harden the tag in the oven at 110° C/ 230° F for 30 minutes. Then pull the thread through the hole to make beautiful decorations for your gifts.
Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film to protect it from dust and dirt.
As an option: marbling
Form two 1/2 blocks of FIMO in different colours into balls and then into sausages. Twist the two sausages tightly together. Roll the twisted sausage into a ball and knead it until you have created a pretty marbled effect. Next roll the FIMO ball out into a sheet using the acrylic roller. When you’ve created a lovely marbled design, cut out the shape, stamp the tag with letters and complete.
