My 21st post for Thing-a-Day 2013
Let me introduce you to my new range of embossed copper labels for my herb garden! I found these blank copper labels in my local hardware store but instead of simply writing on them with a ball point pen I decided to go a bit upmarket and create a raised embossed name tag.
I found a nice font on the computer and made labels of the correct size but printed them out as a mirror image. I could then cut these out and working from the back of the copper sheet, trace round the letters to create the embossed word. The letters were sharpened by running the ballpoint pen nib around the embossed letters on the obverse side.
I think these will look great in my new garden – especially as the copper begins to oxidise and get a nice patina on them.
Loads more labels and herb varieties to go…
