Christmas ornaments

I saw this on pintrest and had to do this! Cause we all now how fast
babies grow and with me having a little baby again I had to do this quick before she gets even bigger.
Here is the recipe:
12 small hand prints
4 Cups flour
1 Cup salt
1 1/2 Cups water
Directions: Combine and knead dough for 15-20 minutes. Roll dough out and cut around hands and 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 hangers and prick to prevent air bubbles.
Bake at 300 degrees about 20-25 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 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.
