Clay Heart Tags

I had so much fun making these hearts that I got a little carried away....Someone stop me!


I'm joining the 14 days of crafting going on at JoJo & Eloise 
Please drop over and see all of the fabulous Valentine crafts


 To make the hearts I used oven bake Sculpey clay...


 ....Rolled out thin.  For the lace impression I used a rolling pin and rolled over the lace... 


...Then cut out the heart with a cookie cutter


 On some I used cute rose decals....The water slide decal tutorial is HERE.


These are really cute tied to gifts, jars, or candle sticks....Heck, I think these are cute enough to be a gift all by themselves


Yep, I got a little carried away!    


I was having so much fun I didn't realize I'd made so many!  So, if you are not the crafty type, the hearts can be purchased at The Polka Dot Closet


Have fun making these Hearts!

Happy Creating!
Carol

These are the cat's meow! Oh! Adorably romantic! I've always wanted to try Sculpy. I mean, you can't flub up this project, can you? You convinced me! Precious!

Thanks for inspiring us, lacy lady!

Very pretty, Carol! I love the lace impression you did. I haven't tried this type of project, but I think I may have to give it a try.

I love your hearts, Carol! I can see why you can't stop making them:) Now I want to rush right out and buy some of that clay, and I've been wanting to try waterslides, too. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

Love your hearts, I want to get some transfer paper but never think of it until I need it ... wondering what you used to attached the tiny heart to the larger one I am not having much luck gluing clay to clay ?? Thx, Elaine

Linda said...

Bingo, just the project I need. I have a small package of Sculpey that I wanted to try on a project and this is a great beginner one. Also hear so much about the water slide decals, but no idea how they worked. Double bonus today! Love these and thanks so much for a wonderful blog.

Another lovely project - HOW do you think of all these clever sweet things? (Reluctant to comment, actually, since I mentioned you on my little unromantic blog earlier, lol).

Such sweet hearts! I always remember the first time I came over and you sent me paperdolls! You have a generous heart and I always enjoy your blog very much! Thanks for sharing! I think these hearts would look cute on a Valentine's Day tree too!

No, don't stop! They are so pretty! I haven't tried the clay, might give it a try. Thanks for the lace tip, etc.

Marilyn said...

The ones with the lace pattern are my favorites! I am seriously cleaning upstairs for my mom's stay next week, so I will not be running to town to buy some of the clay. BUT, it's going on my list of things to do!! Thanks for sharing!♥♫

Jan from Wyoming said...

I love your hearts! I had previously seen clay hearts and round decorations at gardenmama.typepad.com. She used Sculpey UltraLight, because it is much more pliable than regular Sculpey. She said she likes the porcelain look of the UltraLight, and the fact that she could get that look in a unbreakable form of Sculpy. It seems that I read that UltraLight is indeed ultra light as far as weight goes.

My question since I have not used either type of Sculpey... Do you have any concerns about regular Sculpey being breakable? Is it fairly light in weight? What kind of "look" does the fired Sculpey have (re UltraLight looks like porcelain?) Certainly, your hearts look lovely from the photos, so I am assuming the texture and look is satisfying. If you have time to reply, I would love it. I can't get UltraLight around here, but Sculpey is easily available. I guess if I really want to know, I can order some Sculpey UltraLight as well as some Sculpey and compare them myself, eh?

Once again, I love your blog and your style. I am so glad to be following you!

I'm pinning these great hearts. I should just start a Pinterest board titled Polka Dot Closet ideas!

marda said...

OH my your hearts are so sweet. It does seem like you got carried away, but in a good way. Now I'm going to have to give this a try.
Perfect little gift tags that are part of the gift.

Bellenza Wedding Bistro said...

Definitely beautiful enough to be gifts in themselves! Thinking bridal shower with a vintage theme...these would be perfect keepsakes!

Shabby chic Sandy said...

Love your tags--rolling the lace on them is an awesome idea!

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

So sweeeet, perfect for so many things. Gift tags, tree ornaments, window hangers, napkin holders and on and on !

Lora said...

These are so gorgeous. I love your idea. Is the clay color you used a white or off white? I am going to have to try this. I have not been able to find lace wide enough with a nice design. Did you have to order lace? May I ask where you bought the lace?

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

It's no wonder you got a little carried away, these are so sweet. I love pattern that was created with the lace. They look good enough to eat!!

Debbiedoo's said...

Those are so stinkin cute Carol! I would get carried away too.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Carol, these hearts are just darling. Love them and the details.
I can see they can be very addictive to create.

Thank you for the well wishes. I am a bit better from the flu but have pleurisy now. Just going to take some time to recoup. I am not good at that part though.
Have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Vanessa said...
