salt dough

These fancy schmancy salt dough tags will add pizazz to your DIY wedding favors. They’re fun and easy to make too! If you have stamps with individual letters, you could also use these as name cards.

Here is what you need to make these salt dough tags:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • heart cookie cutters
  • stamps (Amazon has a great selection of stamps, but the ones I used for this tutorial came from Michael’s)
  • ink pad
  • bamboo skewer or straw to make hole in tags
  • ribbon
  • sand paper

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix dry ingredients.
