Sparkle dough ornaments

Winter is not my friend, and I tend to hibernate through it.  My kids though, are not the hibernating types.  And today, they were practically climbing the walls.
I figured it was a good day to try a new craft.
We made salt dough and sparkle dough ornaments for the tree (and a few for nonna).
I like the salt dough, especially if were going to be painting the ornaments, but I wanted to make some matte white ornaments as well. 
I searched a few recipes on Pinterest and finally found one that looked pretty and simple...
and then I added glitter to make it fabulous!

Sparkle Dough

1 cup cornstarch
2 cups baking soda
1.5 cups water

Mix up the cornstarch, baking soda, and water in a saucepan over medium until it gets nice and thick, like pudding. 
Put it in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth until it's cool.

Then you simply roll it out over the glitter and cut your shapes. Super simple.

If it gets a little sticky add more cornstarch, if it gets a little dry, add more water. It's so easy to work with. 

Lay your shapes out on a cookie sheet dusted with flour and bake for an hour on 175. 

And youre done. 

I made a little imprint of Zs tiny mistletoes that I'm in love with.

You could paint them as well, but I love the look of silky white with the white sparkles.
