When adding house plants to my collection it’s super easy to forget the names of each one. I often have to rely on Plant Snap to figure out which plant is which.

With these darling little plant tags, now I’ll always know! And they are much more aesthetically pleasing than the plastic ones that come from the store.

4. Create plant names with the stackable stamps.

I love that these stamps can be used and stacked both horizontally and vertically!

5. Press the letter stamps firmly into the flat portion of the clay.

Different plant names will need different lengths of clay to create markers with.

6. Place the maleable clay tags onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake according to the package instructions. This is usually 20 minutes at 250 degrees F for me.

Polymer clay crafting tips:

  • Work with a high quality product like sculpey clay.
  • Use plastic wrap in an air tight container to store clay.
  • Score where you want two pieces of clay to stick together.
  • Shape cutters work best on a flat, solid work surface.
  • A craft oven is not needed.
  • Bake at low temperatures to allow the clay to set slowly and prevent cracking.
  • You can find clay of all kinds of different colors at Michaels stores.
