until it turns into a firm clay.

4.Clay is best used at room temp. you may need 
to dust your rolling pin, hands or working
surface with cinnamon, or use wax paper as a
working surface. 
5.Roll out clay with a rolling pin to approx.
1/8 of an inch thick. 
6.Use cutters to cut out desired shapes. 
7.If you are going to hang, use a straw to cut 
out a hole near the top of the shape.

or wax paper but you'll need to keep an eye on
them and turn them over occasionally so that 
they dry evenly and dry flat. 
9.Dry shapes for approx. 5 days.

for hanging on the tree or adding to a package.
