Sooo…the big question this time of year is always… “Are you ready for Christmas?”. Umm…No. We finally got our tree up Sunday night. I still have baking and shopping to do. But on Christmas Eve, I hope I can say “Yes, I’m ready.” ha.
I was playing around, though, with some salt dough ornaments using my Poinsettias & Candles stamp set and one of my Christmas cookie stamps.
I mixed my dough and rolled it out on freezer paper, then cut the hearts by hand. I used 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup warm water but my mixture was sticky and needed more flour. Next time I’ll add more salt or less water. Use a toothpick or straw to make a hole.
The hearts were stamped with Versafine ink.
I baked them in a toaster oven at 200 degrees and flipped them a few times (not sure how long) but my toaster oven runs hot so next time I’ll use the regular oven. The toaster oven browned them a bit…so I sponged some Distress Vintage Photo on to “age” them.
This might be my last post before the holiday so I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!
