How To:
Take some clay and roll it to about 5mm thickness.
Once rolled, lay your cookie cutter over the top and press to indent. Remove the excess clay from the outside(i left that for last ;)

Next, you’ll want to make a small hole so that you can hang your decoration up. I used a straw,

Next comes the exciting bit – using any shape , doily or stamps, you can create the indentations by simply pressing them onto your clay shape
To smooth any edges, wet your finger and gently run over the edges , let it dry and you are all done :)
