I will make this again! Fun easy project with the grandkids. Came out nice and white so when painted they were nice and bright.

Most helpful critical review

I am not good at making these - 2 tries, 2 fails but my co worker uses this recipe so its likely my fault. PLEASE NOTE: toxic for dogs! I feel it is WELL worth noting somewhere in the recipe...

I want to find larger cutters for my Halloween and Christmas ornaments. I'd also like to find Thanksgiving cutters. This recipe is perfect. My daughter and I have so much fun painting these.

Great recipe will def. make again!!

easy to make and easy to work with

Horrible recipe don't waste your time super upset with it

3 hours and my ornaments are almost dry.... The bigger handprint ornaments have a long way to go.... taking way too long. I think maybe the water content in the dough is too high?
