Make Gingerbread Ornaments with Clay and Memento Ink

This holiday season, the best recipe for gingerbread cookies can be found right here! It takes only a few ingredients/materials and no baking, with a long-lasting fresh cookie look!

The first ingredient is clay!

I used an air dry one to avoid any “baking” at all. A nice match of Walnut Ink Crystals with Memento Inkpad Rich Cocoa pad gives a beautiful gingerbread color that will make people think these cookies are baked to perfection.

Decorate the cookies with easy glazing and fine detail provided by the thin nozzle of irRESISTible Pico Embellisher colors.

See if you can trick someone into tasting them! (Ok, maybe don’t go that far…)

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour + clay drying time

Directions

Step 1

Use the rolling pin to flatten the clay in a thick layer. Cut shapes with the cookie cutters. Lay them on the parchment paper and set aside to dry.
