I decided this year to make tags instead of buying them. It went…OK. I’m not very impressed by them. I used Martha Stewart’s rubber stamps and, honestly, I was very unimpressed by them. If I had to do it again, I would have gotten a set of metal stamps from Amazon or something. The Martha Stewart stamps kept falling out of the holders and didn’t show up as well as I hoped. But they came out.
What you will need:
- 1 cup salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup warm water
Step 01: Mix all ingredients and create a ball.
Step 02: Sprinkle some flour your surface and roll your ball of salt dough flat.
Step 03: Stamp your labels into your dough.
Step 04: Cut dough into shapes. (I used a peanut butter jar lid to cut out the circles.)
Step 05: Place tags onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 200°F for 2-3 hours. You can also leave your tags out and let them air dry, but that will take 2-3 days.
That’s pretty much it!
I took sandpaper to the edges just a little bit because the peanut butter jar lid wasn’t fantastic. But they came out OK. I used the end of a beater to put the holes through them.
