I used the pasta machine to roll out the clay. You can use whatever else you have on hand. I tried to make these approximately 1/4" thick. I couldn't find an oval cookie cutter but did find oval fondant cutters. I cut out a couple different sizes.
I wanted to make some for a bucket label, some for basket labels, and some for magnets. For the bucket labels and basket labels, I used a sophisticated tool called a pencil to poke holes in the right places.
I baked them according to the clay box's instructions. Here they are fresh from the oven.

My suggestion for stamping is to use an actual rubber stamp verses clear stamps. The clear stamps tend to move a little thus creating a blurred image. I'm sharing my tags over at:
