1. Knead the clay
Unwrap the clay and start kneading it with your hands. Work the clay to soften it up a bit, then roll it into a ball.
2. Roll out the clay
Lay out a piece of parchment paper on your work surface. Grab your rolling pin and roll out the clay to approximately 1/4-inch thickness.
3. Cut the strips
Use the pizza cutter to cut the clay into strips that are about 1/2-inch wide.
4. Separate the strips
Gently separate the strips from the rest of the clay by using a small spatula.
5. Make the point
Cut a point at one end of the strip with the pizza cutter.
6. Stamp the letters
Use your alphabet stamps to spell out the names of the herbs in the clay. You can use small decorative stamps like flowers and leaves to add a little extra design.
7. Bake the clay
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Lay the strips out on a piece of parchment paper placed on top of a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven for 1 hour.
8. Put them in the ground
Once the garden stakes have cooled, stick them in the soil and they are ready to use.
