Travel Time - Gift bag with pretty tag
Creative holiday gifts
It’s nice to bring back a little souvenir for your loved ones back home, to show them that you were thinking of them while you were away. Something typical of the country you’ve been to, shells you’ve collected on the beach or little souvenirs, maybe - a little cotton bag makes pretty and sustainable packaging for them. With a customised greeting stamped on a homemade FIMOair tag, these one-of-a-kind gifts make a lovely surprise.

Cut out your desired template, place it on the sheet of FIMOair and cut away the excess FIMO from the edges using a blade.
Then make a couple of beads from FIMOair basic, thread them onto bead piercing needles and hang over a glass to ensure no pressure marks develop. Now leave the beads and the tag to dry for 24 hours, turning them from time to time.
Then apply size for leaf metal in the desired places, leave for 15 minutes and then add the leaf metal in copper, dabbing it on carefully with a dry brush.
Brush away the surplus with a dry brush. The leaf metal will only stick to the places where you have applied the size.
Finally attach the tag to the cotton back with a cord - and you‘re done!
