How to make a baby hand/foot print Ornament!

With everything going on with building the new bakery and having a full blown crawler to watch after, Prescott and I decided no gifts for each other this year.  But I couldn't resist doing a little something for him from Lawson and this was the perfect idea!

They turned out so cute.  It was super easy to do, not a messy project and best of all CHEAP.  These hand/foot print ornaments will last a lifetime and can be made with items you already have sitting in your cupboard.

Here is the recipe below as well as some photos from Lawson's first Christmas in Colorado, yes another successful plane trip for this little traveler to visit more family :)

1/2 c. salt
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. water

Knead until dough forms.  Roll out and place on parchment paper.  Imprint hand or foot. Use toothpick to carefully dot carve the year and then use a straw to poke hole through for hanging on the tree.  Bake at 200 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until hard.
