Mix the ingredients together, shape the dough into a ball, flatten it and make handprints, bake, and voila! You have a unique and personal keepsake.
  • Paper Plate Crafts - Paper plates are an inexpensive and accessible material for crafting. You can create a variety of animals, masks, or even a Frisbee with just a few simple cuts and folds.
