Cornflour clay (cornstarch clay, baker's clay) is very easy to make and can be used to create decorations. It is a very soft and smooth material which is lovely to handle and is finer and paler than salt dough.
We made some pretty stamped tags to decorate a present.

You will need:
1/4 cup cornflour (cornstarch)
1/2 cup bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/3 cup water
Cookie cutter
Drinking straw
Rubber stamp

How to make it:
Mix all the ingredients together in a pan. The corn flour and bicarb will dissolve quickly in the water to make a white liquid.
Heat gently stirring constantly. It will stay liquid for a while then start to thicken to make a paste. When it becomes a very thick paste, remove from the heat. You should now be able to pull together into a ball.
Allow to cool down.

The cornflour clay can now be used or wrapped in plastic cling film and stored in the fridge to use later.
No extra flour should be needed when rolling out.
Roll out the dough and use a small cookie cutter to cut out the shape of your tags. We used a small tub to create our shape.

Press a rubber stamp onto the tag to make a decoration.

Use a straw to punch a hole in your tag.

Place the cornflour clay tags on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake slowly on the lowest heat setting on the oven until dry. (We baked ours at approx 100C for around an hour)
When cool, tie ribbon through the tag hole.
Your cornflour clay tags are now ready to attach to your gift.
