Cookie Stamp Ornaments

It was baking day at my house yesterday. Yummy sugar cookies and mint-chocolate chunk cookies. While we were in the kitchen the kids and I made up a batch of salt-dough ornaments. Did you know you can stamp on dough? 
We used the snowflake and heart from the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps Holiday Set. Really! Just inked them up with Midnight Muse and Real Red and pressed into the salt-dough! I used a glass to cut them out.
To make some Gumball Green trees and Daffodil Delight stars we applied ink directly to the cut out shapes.
Don't forget to poke a hole before baking/drying for the ribbon.
Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint was sponged on to add sparkle.

Combined 4 cups flour, 1 cup salt and 1-1/2 cup water. Knead for five minutes. Roll dough on a floured surface to about 1/4" thickness. Stamp the cookie stamp onto a classic ink pad and then press into the dough. Use a small circle cookie cutter to cut out the stamped image. Poke a hole for the hanger. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 45 minutes at 180 degrees F. Let cool. Use a sponge to add shimmer paint as desired.
