 I'm tying one to everyone's presents this year, and sending some Fleur De Lis to people we volunteered with in New Orleans/Buras after Katrina [shh, no-one knows!] and my family from New Orleans, I love their simplicity, and the way they're not totally Christmas-ey and can be used all year!
 They're ceramic, fired in one of my kilns, rolled with a rolling pin, hand stamped, and the curved edges turned up by hand Cheesy

Oh, they're lovely. Simple and pretty. I can absolutely see a laid back, rustic Christmas tree decorated with them.

Very nice indeed! Wondering if I could create something similar with air-dry clay....

 I almost edited it to mention they'd probably be pretty similar with that or white polymer clay if someone didn't have a kiln!
 The star is a mini cookie cutter from a set I got so we could make smaller cookies last year since I didn't want Amelia getting so much sugar at a time, I can't find the set in my attic, but they were at Michael's last year, sold in a clear plastic 4-5" cube, and the trees, reindeer, mittens etc would be such a cute set, all about 1 and 1/2".

I was going to ask if I could borrow one of your kilns, but since you mentioned poly clay, I might not have to now. Cheesy  Hehe!

I think I have the same cookie cutter set, too, yay!

Those are beautiful.

I love that they look like cookie presses.

I want to find a bigger star to make pillar candle holders, if I can just remember while I'm actually in a store!
