the inspiration for these salt dough personalized gift tags came from these stamped cookies.
first i made this standard salt dough recipe. little miss s made her own salt dough ornaments too. we spent a solid 3 hours doing this one rainy afternoon recently. i roll my dough out onto parchment paper, that way when it is time to put the cutouts in the oven the shapes don't get distorted from transferring them from the rolling surface to the cookie sheet. mamas, if you do something like this with your kiddos, let them make their own. don't get mad at them if they don't do it your way or if their idea of perfect isn't the same as yours. this is often how i'm able to work on projects during the day. i let little miss s make her own version of what i'm doing. it buys me time to work on stuff i want to work on with her, but separately at the same time.
now here's where the personalization comes in. i gathered all my stamps.
*****this is an important step*****
i put my stamp in flour and tapped off any excess flour and then stamped my dough cutouts.
once you have all your cutouts stamped, pop them in the oven until cooked and attach them to your packages. they can work as ornaments or personalized gift tags.
