here's the recipe:
12 small hand prints (change servings and units)
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water
Combine ingredients and knead dough for 15 to 20 minutes.
Roll dough out and cut around hand or cut circles out for making hand imprints. Use cookie cutters for ornaments or gift tags. If necessary, slightly dampen pieces to make them stick together.
Make a small hole for the hanger and prick to prevent air bubbles.
Bake at 300ºF about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. You may have to bake considerably longer depending on how thick your items are. They may not feel hard right away but will harden as they cool.
tip: make sure to use a nonstick surface, or spray cookie sheet with pam. if you do get some stickage, cover the back with felt or cardstock. attach with hot glue gun.
Paint and decorate as desired. Acrylic paints work best and use a varnish to make them shiny.
