- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Use the rolling pin to roll the clay out flat. You can use a sheet of wax paper underneath to stop it sticking to the surface.
- Cut your shapes out of the clay using the cookie cutters, then poke a hole at the top of each shape with the needle for hanging.
- Smooth out the edges with your fingers. Allow the clay to dry and harden for twelve hours.

Hi Tania, we’re so happy you like it!!
Do you have a trick for getting the clay out of those snowflake cookie cutters? By the time I was done getting the clay out from the cookie cutter my snowflakes looked pretty martian. Thanks!
Oh no! Try adding a little cooking spray or a light rub down with olive or coconut oil.
