Incase you where wondering

How to make the ornaments from yesterday here is the link to what I used from Full of Great Ideas.

Don’t make the entire recipe, unless you want 40 or 50 medium sized ornaments. I allowed the ornaments to dry over night so they kept their crisp white look, otherwise it has that browned cookie look, but if your kids are impatient and your painting them anyways then it takes a half hour to bake. I had extra dough so I just put the dough ball in the fridge in a Ziploc and a damp towel and it worked great the next day. I used rubber stamps and embossing folders for mine, but you can use cookie stamps if you have them, twigs, greenery or fingerprints.

Helpful tip, roll dough on wax or parchment paper and then cut it out while on paper. It’s easier to transfer to drying rack, and less messy. Learnt the hard way then I had to scrape and wipe and wipe and scrape it off my table.

If you need a little inspiration you can check out this board full of simple to intermediate Christmas crafts.

Have fun! See you in the new year.
