Paper Clay Ornaments

This is a great craft to do to use up all your scraps of paper.

Here is what you will need:

2 cups of construction paper scraps
4 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup of flour

1.Tear paper scraps into small pieces.

2. Put scraps and 4 cups of water in the blender.

3. Blend for about 30 seconds until the mixture turns to "pulp".

4. Drain the pulp.

5.Remove the pulp and squeeze out the excess water.

6. Combine the flour and 1/2 cup of water.

7. Add the pulp to the flour mixture and knead them together. I had to add extra flour at this point because it was too sticky.

8. Add some glitter as you knead the dough.

9. Roll out the dough and cut shapes with cookie cutters.

10. Poke a hole in the top to string ribbon through when they are dry.

11. Allow them to dry for 1 to 2 days before adding the ribbon and hanging them on the tree.
