|Just an idea, esp if you want to work your brain really hard! The tag will turn out really fancy if you turn it over to the back side and write the plant name on it BACKWARDS. It will look like it is stamped. It is time consuming but makes beautiful tags. I hear writing backwards is good for your brain. Quite frankly it hurt like Hell!|

|Oh ShadyGreenThumb, I hope your grain is feeling better by now. Really neat plant tags.|

|You could also punch a hole in one end of the tag and attach to a plant with wire (I use copper, but you could also use insulated electricians wire if some has been left laying around). Just stay loose so it doesn't constrict the plant as it grows.|

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

|I feel so dumb for not thinking of this - thanks, Cheryl!|
In the end, only kindness matters.
Science is not the answer, it is the question.

|Aren't the edges sharp and could cut you? Mindy|

|Yes, I made a bunch of these last summer and they are sharp, but I folded them on the edges so they would not be sharp. I also punched my holes with an actual hole punch. |
I think it would be great to make a double batch of these and not only mark the outside of your plant, but bury one under the plant, so when vermin run off with your tag, you can at least ID it later when it is time to harvest/divide.
