I've been drying herbs and calendula by laying them out onto a sheet of paper towel, putting another sheet of paper towel on top, then lay this into a brown paper bag which I store upright until crispy.
Another method that can work is putting them on a plate with some paper towel on top and microwaving it for bursts of 15 seconds or so until done. I have had a lot of success with this method for drying rosemary, less so with bay leaves which made a popping sound.
Hope that helps.

Yeah, I dried some in the the microwave this year - various “Italian” herbs, sage, thyme, etc. They are already gone 😁
