Update: The link above no longer works sorry folks! I did find a similar recipe here so I will copy it out and include a link to it as well for the rest of the instructions!
1 cup corn starch
2 cups baking soda
1.25 cups cold water
Here is a few photos and tips on how I made mine...
I found that the dough was very pliable, so when I first started cutting out my shapes they were getting stretched and started losing their shape when I transferred them to the baking sheet. So I decided to roll them out directly on to the Silpat, which also keeps them from sticking during the baking process. I then just removed the excess dough. This way the shapes were perfect, they didn't even crack!
To make the whole, I just used the end of a straw!
To personalize each one of them I used a black ink pad and these great little alphabet stamps I found a Micheal's in their Dollar bins!
Aren't they so cute?... The cookie cutters I used were very small which makes them the perfect size for gift tags too! I had so much fun making these with my daughter, she wants to make more... maybe coloured ones next time!
Thanks for stopping by!
