DIY Herb Garden Markers

Today I thought I'd pop up a DIY christmas present idea up. It's super simple and quite quick at easy! 

These are markers for herb gardens. Perfect for anyone who's got green fingers and likes to grown their own herbs! 

You will need: 
Polymer Oven Bake Clay
Letter Stamps
Rolling Pin (Or something similar, I used a milk bottle!)
Oven 

How to do it: 
- Set your oven as your clay packet instructs! This will vary, so make sure you read what yours says. 
- Cut your clay into equal pieces and roll them with your hands into long sausage like shapes. Don't make them too thin and make them long enough so they'd poke out of the top of a flower pot. 
- Then, flatten these out with your rolling pin and square off the corners. I made sure the top was square and the bottom had a point - but you can make them however you like. 
- Gently press in the stamps at the top end to spell out your chosen herbs. 
- I popped one test one in the oven to make sure it all worked, then you're good to go. Roll, stamp and bake! Make sure they're laying flat on an oven proof tray. 

I added a few personal touches to make it an even sweeter gift. They are a little delicate, but package and wrap them well and they'll be fine! 

Let me know if you make them! I'd love to see your snaps.
