I started years ago making these with my children, and now I make them with my grandkids. They last for years and the house smells so good when they are drying. Smells like Christmas.

  1. Mix the first 2 ing. well & then add the glue. mix well. Roll out on a cinnamon covered surface with a rolling pin covered with cinnamon to about 1/4 ". Cut out with cookie cutters. We do gingerbread boys, gingerbread girls, hearts, stars & snowflakes. Using a small straw, etc. put a hole in the top to hang. I line a sheet pan with parchment paper, lay them on and leave to dry. I turn them everyday & it takes apx. 3-4 days to day. After they are dry, we decorate them with puff paints, glitter paints, & on the snowflakes we also use the sparkle snow glitter. Your house smells so good when they are drying. We have been making these for years, & have some on almost all of our 7 trees. Hope you all enjoy!
