p> You will need: - Oven-bake clay
- Cookie cutters (mine are from Ikea) - A hot glue gun
- Scissors
- Baking paper
- Rolling pin (not in the photo)

Step 1.
Tear off some baking paper to work on. Roll out the clay until it's approximately 5 mm thick (about 1/8 ") and, using a cookie cutter of your choice, punch out the shape from the clay.

Step 2.
Set up your stamp to spell out the word you want on your plant label. Practice stamping it first on a spare piece of clay to make sure spacing / spelling is right, then stamp onto your cut-out clay shape.

Step 3.
Bake the clay shape according to the packet instructions.

Step 4.
Take a wooden craft stick, and cut the bottom of it into a point using the scissors. If it's too hard or too thick to cut, it's not a problem.

Step 5.
Once the clay shape has cooled, use the glue gun to run a line of glue down on the back of it , and quickly stick to the wooden craft stick to it, holding down firmly until it's dried.

Step 6. < That's it! Up to you!
