Here’s a easy gift to give as hostess gifts. Just make a batch and keep them in a drawer for when the time is needed. Then when you’re going over to a friend’s house for dinner or a friend moves into a new space, simply wrap one of these gift tags around a Mason jar, put some of your favorite plant clippings inside and pass them out. The gift tags also look great on wrapped presents as well.

I originally made this for Mother Nature Network. Click here for the complete how-to.

Supplies you need:

  • Air dry clay. I used Crayola brand that I bought at the craft store.
  • Rolling pin
  • Circle cookie cutter
  • Leafs
  • Pin
  • Craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Stamp ink
  • Mini letter stamps
  • Skewer

Instructions:

Step 1: Roll out your clay.

Step 2: Press your circle cutters into clay. Use a skewer to create a little hole for your string.
