4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. salt
1 1/2 c. cold water
Christmas cookie cutters
Ribbons for hangers


Mix flour and salt together. Slowly add water while stirring with a fork until soft dough forms. Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, adding a small amount of water or flour, if needed. Roll dough on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Place ornaments 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Punch "hanging holes" with a drinking straw. Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes. Baking time will vary with size of ornaments. When completely cool, you may paint ornaments with Tempra paints or leave natural. Coat with shellac. Note: Dough will keep indefinately if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
