I've been in the process of making some of these. I posted a thread awhile back asking what kind of magnets to use. I can't find really thin ones. Can anyone help? CJ

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- Donnaj, 22:52:50 08/19/05 Fri [1]

I use the buisness card magnets (buy at office supply store)and they work for me, I've also used free ones with advertizing on them that stores give out or come in junk mail ( walgreens has them a lot), another way to get some free is go to www.magnecote.com
and request a samples you will not only get a booklet FULL of thin magnet sheets you can cut up but you also get a really cute tin that looks like a refrigerator... all this FREE
of course most the booklet has printing on it but so what thats the side you glue to the bookmark anyway
You would have enough in the sample booklet to do probably all the bookmarks you would ever want to make

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- shirttails, 23:14:14 08/19/05 Fri [1]

I understand using the magnets, but what does the magnet attract to on this bookmark? Will someone please explain? The autumn bookmarks are really neat, are there other ones that can be found somewhere for other holidays? Curious mind wants to add this to the round-to-it pile.

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- crafterwannabe, 23:30:34 08/19/05 Fri [1]

CJ - Wal-Mart has thin magnet sheets in their craft department - not sure of the price since I was thinking it might be too thin for what I wanted so I passed. Tried some business card magnets but they were too thick. I was surprised the other day when I went in Dollar Tree and found thin magnet sheets there - I think they are about the same thickness as I saw at Wal-Mart. Bought those and it was just right (I was doing another project).

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- PattyWV, 13:08:16 08/20/05 Sat [1]

Shirtails,
The magnet attaches to another magnet. Picture this...fold in half a regular bookmark.On the inside glue a flat magnet to each bottom section. When you're done reading you can either place it along the top with the page you stopped on between the magnets,or on the side marking both the page and the line you stopped on. I hope this helped.

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- shirttails, 13:46:32 08/20/05 Sat [1]

Thanks. I was confused as to adding magnets and having them repel each other instead of attract.

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- DonnaJ, 15:33:33 08/20/05 Sat [1]

When attaching the magnets you just have to make sure that the magnets are turned so they will stick together before you glue them down, if you dont turn one upside down they wont stick

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- Doreen G, 22:21:21 08/20/05 Sat [1]

I wonder if this is the website you remembered for magnetic bookmarks. It not only has a number of nice magnetic bookmarks but several other great printables and templates as well.

Not that it matters too much for the bookmarks, but did you know if you wash the magnets with advertising on them the printing washes off!! I tossed some in the sink with my dishes one evening and hey they're plain!

[> Re: ♥ ISO Site for Printable MAGNETIC bookmarks ♥ -- crafterwannabe, 18:17:22 08/21/05 Sun [1]

DonnaJ - I'm glad you gave us your tip. And, Bonnie, that's great news! I have a bunch so I'm going to try it too. Thanks to you both

Domino pins and tile magnets

Subject: Aww...you've made me so happy! Instructions for domino pin and tile magnet

WOW! I just checked my email and there was a message from Shirley saying there was a "buzz" on the board! Thanks for the compliments. You have made me glow! You may be very surprised when you hear how easy both crafts are!

DOMINO PIN; I soak my dominos in a qt. size jar filled with bleach for 24 hours to remove the shiny coating. I like to use staz-on ink to stamp my dominos because it's very permanent and dries fast. This domino was stamped with red staz-on. First with a script stamp which I wiped a little bit to smear it and then with the heart border stamp. When that dried I coated the sides with the same ink and then sprayed the domino with Krylon glossy spray. I used E600 to glue the pin back on. There is a variety of different ways to work with dominoes. I also use sharpies to color an image. Lumiere paints make a beautiful background and then you can stamp a black image over it and you're done.

TILE: The tile was done the very same way. Except I do not soak the tile in bleach. I use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to clean the surface. I used stazon ink to stamp the images and then finished it with the glossy sealer and glued the magnet on. I have never had trouble with the magnets staying on however someone once suggested to me to use caulking on the tile rather than hot glue. I buy the tiles at home depot or Menards and NOTHING goes to waste! There are small squares nestled in between the hexagon shapes and those become push pins, mosaic pieces, magnets and if they're white, I make them into snowmen pins. I'll hvae to get a picture of those on the board. Sometimes, there is mesh backing on tile (there are 24? tiles on each square and I pull them apart). The mesh backing can be embossed and used as a background on a card, journal, whatever...

I sell many of these each year and I love them because I can mass produce and they're an inexpensive craft.

I believe I covered it all! Sorry I didn't see the posts before now. If you have any more questions I'll be happy to help.
Renee M.

I have seen a lot of projects using dominos that I would love to try. The craft books say they are using a faux ivory and was wondering if any of you can tell me where I can find them. TIA Connie H.

I got a Faux Ivory set at the Dollar Store. Then I ordered some from ABC Distributing...but they are oversized and wooden.

I have also seen them at Wally World.

[> Re: Dominos -- flo, 11:22:07 12/11/03 Thu [1]

Any store that sells dominoes or games should have the faux ivory sets - they are pretty common game pieces. I bought mine at Target.

[> Re: Dominos -- me, 08:58:55 12/14/03 Sun [1]

There are domino projects under Altered Art on the MSN site.

> Re: Dominos -- flo, 11:13:58 12/14/03 Sun [1]

Dominoes are a hot surface in rubber stamping using embossing powders. Dominoes make great jewelry items and keychains. They have also become a nice ornament surface for us decorative painters. They can be stamped, painted, decoupaged, and more!

Here are some sites to view some really cool dominoe projects:

Eileen did you use real dominos? Those are so neat, I never tire of seeing you wonderful things. You sure get your money out of that Xyron. I love mine too. But I make so much stuff and then don't know what to do with it. Do you sell at shows? Thanks so much for always sharing your creations. Hugs, JKathleen

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Eileen, 09:54:34 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Yep, real plastic dominoes. Got them at ToysRUs in a tin.

I do not do shows. I make up something and then give most away. Once in awhile I sell a few. I have so much fun making them. And I would not trade my Xyron for anything.....
Eileen

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Crafty43, 09:57:03 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Wow!! Very nice. Would you share your instructions? They are so beautiful! I don't have an Xyron machine, could I make them without one? My birthday is this week, DH has been asking me what I would like to have. I guess my questions are, would I use one much and what should I look for? Thanks and Happy Crafting!

I have never used Xyron, can you use it for photos? or what could you please explain it to me thanks
Robbie

[> Re: Domino Pins -- ShirleyT, 12:44:20 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Beautiful! I love my Xyron too though I'm not as prolific with it as Eileen! You just run your paper or whatever, even fabric between the rollers and it laminates the top and bottom. You can also get different cartridges so that you can make it sticky on bottom for stickers or laminate it straight to magnet and all sorts of neat things you can do!

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Eileen, 13:41:54 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Crafty43,
The Domino's are plastic, came in a tin. They are called double 6's. I have not played dominoes since I was a kid so have no idea what that means. 28 in the tin for $4.99 at Toys R Us. I wanted to try the black ones at the dollar store but they had none.

For the colored ones I just rubbed them on a stamp pad , hit them with a hairdryer and wiped off the excess..... stamp pads were at least 10 years old leftover from my stamping days. Just regular stamp pad ink.

The edges have colored car striping tape on them. So much easier than painting.....

The dots go on the back. a pin covers them......thats part of the fun.....you can see they were recycled dominoes.

Hope this helps.
Eileen

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Crafty43, 13:48:31 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Wow! Sounds like I might be able to handle it. So pretty and seems to be fairly easy. I hesitate to say the easy word, I haven't tried it yet. Thanks for sharing and Happy Crafting!

Hi, I'm new here and love this site. You are all so nice here. I wanted to let you know how lovely all your things are. [I sneaked a peek at your albums] Where do you get your clipart or do you use stickers? I love your little pot-ladies and your pins. I work with 2 nursing homes and a veterans home and would like to make some of your ideas up for the holidays [Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Memorial Day,etc.] Our seniors look forward to receiving little presents and I think they might enjoy some of your ideas.
Again, thanks for sharing your work and thanks to all for this really nice and friendly site.

Re: Domino Pins -- Eileen
Addie, I have no need for stickers as I make my own from graphics. I have a Xyron laminator. It laminates the top and puts adhesive on the back of anything I print from the computer. I use it for everything.....well almost everything....

I use a lot of hugware graphics.....cheap and really neat....
tons of choices...

www.pccrafter.com

And I have cutecolors and jerseygirl and Janes graphics too....Printmaster has a few good ones....lots of places to get them free on the net. Go to www.google.com and type in free graphics, or Easter graphics or whatever....it boggles the mind what's available....
Eileen

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Addie, 23:34:36 03/14/04 Sun [1]

Thank you Eileen, for the information on the graphics. I am eager to look into some of the sites you named. I went to look for some of the little pots that are used for the pot ladies and found a dozen of them tucked away in a drawer. I also found 14 4inch flower pots someone gave me last year that I had cleaned and stacked in the basement. I think I could make them up as chicks and the nursing home could use them as centerpieces for Easter. We could give them as prizes for bingo and they could sit on the windowsills or better yet I could convert them into windchimes for the patio and sunroom. Gosh, you have my head spinning with ideas! Could you tell me which Xyron machine you have? I could use my 40% coupon at Michael's or ask DH for one for my birthday. Thanks again and hope I'm not too big a pain!

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Renee, 18:34:57 03/15/04 Mon [1]

Very nice Eileen!!

About the domino backs, it's fun to give them as birthday gifts with the number of dots on the back the same as their age! I agree with Eileen...knowing they're a domino is half the fun! Renee M.

[> Re: Domino Pins -- Eileen, 20:33:16 03/15/04 Mon [1]

Addie, I have a Xyron 850. Michaels near me does not stock that one anymore....you would have to get a 900. I don't know anything about them.

If you have a vendors liscense you can get them half off at wildeideas.... go for a 850.....

Just a couple of questions, could you decoupage them if you don't have a xyron? How expensive is the xyron to use, refills etc.? Just curious, I love the pins.

Love this project too - always love your projects! Is the laminate just on the top surface? No going over the edges? I'm thinking it must be that way or your tape wouldn't look so smooth on the sides.

Eileen, Those are tooooooo cute. I have a question though........do you still use them as regular dominoes to play with, or they just for conversation pieces? Also, do you have a store where you can get them for a reasonable price? And do you sell them as a set at a show? If so, what do you get for them? (I'm full of questions today, aren't I?) Thanks for your help, Lisa

[> Re: New dominoes....woo hoo.... -- Eileen, 11:44:24 03/25/04 Thu [1]

Lisa,
I get them for $3.99 at K Mart. they are called double 6's. But I found a tin for $7.50 that has double the amount so you would save a little if you were gonna make a bunch. They come 28 in a tin.

I have over 50 made and have not sold done.....have sent a bunch to a sick friend and another friend. Am hoping to get $2 each or 2 for $3. what do you think?

They will be pins and magnets......but you could play with them I suppose.

Hope this helps.....Eileen

[> Re: New dominoes....woo hoo.... -- Lisa, 12:33:20 03/25/04 Thu [1]

Subject: dominoes and Easter egg dye

Just some FYI for those of you who are enjoying playing with dominoes....it's fun to soak them in Easter egg dye for as long as you want until you get the desired color. I bleach my dominoes over night to remove the glossy surface and then dye them. I also dye them in tea and coffee. Have fun! Renee

[> Re: dominoes and Easter egg dye -- Renee, 22:35:43 03/27/04 Sat [1]

Ummmm...you lost me Eileen. What do you mean what am I using for heads? If it's the photo transfer you're talking about it would slide right onto the domino like a photograph. Does that make sense? Although I like the idea of making a full body with the domino. I have seen that done.

I'm still in the dark ages without a digital camera. Sorry no pics. I have seen cats done with a laminated cat head a pipe cleaner tail. Very cute and made into pins.

What do I do with them. Magnets, pins, key chains, mosaics, collage. I've seen them made into earrings....these are the mini dominos. Play with chekits, rummikub tiles...Necklaces are very fun and easy to make.
Dominos are very easy to drill through.

Sorry, I don't get to the board on a regular basis. I'm a very busy mom ...sometimes I feel lucky to get on the computer at all!!! If you do a search for domino art you will be amazed how much you find. There is a domino art group at yahoo. The sharpie queen in on there and she does amazing things with Sharpies when she colors her images.

Anyway, hope this made sense. I'll try to check back tomorrow. Renee

Renee,
I must be losing it....I was sure you were making a domino person....arms and legs and a head..... I have the arms, legs figured out , its the head that is stumping me. I did a google search on domino pins and there are a lot.

I have been using ink and laminated graphics on mine. Am sure they are not as neat as yours.... You have directions for a photo transfer? Can you share ???

[> Re: dominoes and Easter egg dye -- Renee, 23:07:32 03/28/04 Sun [1]

OH Eileen! I may have said I wanted to try the domino person and just don't remember! I still have hopes to. If you go to rubberstampsclub.com there is a victorian domino person. You can just use the clipart like you use for your beautiful yoyo pins. The arms and legs can be wired into the domino. Just remember you are only limited to your imagination!!!

All your work that you show on this board is neat and well done. You have a very nice style. I will get you the directions to the photo transfer. Be patient with me!

Hey thanks Renee, I would have never thought of using Easter egg dyes or tea for dominos. Have you ever tried putting rub on decals on dominos. Just wondering if you have to prepare the surface first? Thanks. Connie H

I have used the rub-on decals and they work great! Can't see the edges at all Ü

[> Re: dominoes and Easter egg dye -- Renee, 23:10:11 03/22/04 Mon [1]

No, I've never done the rub on decals. I use acrylic paints, ink, rubber stamps, chalk, etc....anything I think I can use! I just fill a quart size jar with dominoes and pour bleach into it to cover them. I wouldn't think you'd need to prep them before using rub on decals. I have seen tissue paper transfers which are really nice. I would like to try that using a photograph of one of my kids or a vintage photo....So many things to try...so little time.

JHM, Okay here is the deal. I will share the directions BUT only if you gals promise to post pics of yours. Deal?????

These are thinner dominoes. Got them at Target....Tan tin
$3.99 for 28 and they have a larger size too. Size is
2 X 1 /16 X 1/4"

Heads are done the exact same way I do all my pins and magnets. Laminate a graphic onto a placemat (KMart, 99cents , vynal placemat, tan and white plaid) After I put the graphic on the placemat and cut it out I traced around it and cut another one out of a piece of placemat to make it a tad thicker. Used E6000 to glue the 2 pieces together and put wax paper on them and a few heavy books and let them sit overnight. I hot glued the head to the top of the domino.

You need 4 brass "eye hooks" for each one (2 for arms, 2 for legs) I bought the smallest size they had at the hardware store. They were 5cents each.

Drill holes for the arms and legs with a 1/16" drill bit. Hubby did them in the drill press and clamped the domino down.

I used gold wire wrapped arounda skewer for the arms

I used a head pin and 2 beads for the legs.

And thats it.....I will not sell them. Just wanted to actually finish some so I could say I did it......I have never had a project give me so much trouble.....am usually able to figure out something pretty quickly.

Subject: ? about putting pictures and verse on tiles

I am trying to make some magnets from small tiles and have some questions. Seems like I read to use the clear printable window cling type medium, which I thought I had, but can't find. Could I print on regular paper and glue the picture on the tile, then cover with clear nail polish type sealer? Could I use wide clear tape and tape the graphic to the tile?
Thanks for your time
Elizabeth

Elizabeth,

Waterslip decals are easy to use & the ones from The CraftyPC are nice. I have tried several different brands & none of them match up to the ones from The CraftyPC.

Email me with your questions & I can fill you in on how to use them. I have used them on tons of projects.

Subject: magnetic flower face magnets??

Does anybody have a pattern for them. They were on the summer swap.. They were so cute. See I like to make the women at my work and my friens gifts .So, I can make stuff like that because I usually have to make about 20 items, it's according what it is.. They like magnets, pins and the candy and poem stuff.

They were made with the flower loom that they sell at Joanns and Walmart (cost about $3.00) Just follow the instructions and wrap yarn all the away around the smaller pokes 3 times. Finish off the way the instructions tell you how. Glue on eyes and pearl nose and magnet. I also used to make the larger flower face. Just make the larger flower with the large and small circles together like the instructions say. Finish off with eyes nose and magnet. I put the large ones in a set of 4. Also dazzle yarn works the best for these flowers.
Regular yarn kinks too much.

Ideas, Poem: Alphabet letters magnet

Date Posted: 06:06:52 07/29/04 Thu
Author: Fay in Australia
Subject: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please?

It is possible to buy here now, cute wooden letters, each in the shape of a letter of the alphabet. Each is brightly painted & has the head of a teddy bear.
I am thinking that although these would make a cute magnet as they are, they may be saleable with some sort of poem. It would be great to do each with a name poem, but with so many different popular names, I could do lots & still not have the right one for a customer. I would be grateful for any suggestions please, Thank you. Fay

Replies:

[> Re: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please? -- jazbo, 10:15:51 07/29/04 Thu [1]

The letters sound so cute, Fay. How about using your poem idea, but just use one of the letters as the beginning letter of each name?

Wasn't there a l-o-n-g thread on poems for children's names? maybe you could use some of those.

Sounds like a fun project. Best of luck.

[> Re: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please? -- Caboobie, 10:20:36 07/29/04 Thu [1]

Like Jazbo said, how about using some of the name poems. You could print out the more popular names on card and leave a space for the letter, then when they ask for a certain one, attach the letter with a bit of double sided tape or a sticky pad. That way you won't have to make up any you don't need.

Re: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please? -- Fay in Australia, 17:47:30 07/29/04 Thu [1]

Thank you for your replies jazbo & caboobie.Yes I think it would be good to use one letter, perhaps attached in such a way that it could be a removable magnet.
Sorry it is a bit early in the morning here. Did you mean to print out a name poem eg. Andrew & wait & see is someone wanted it & then add the A wooden letter?
Or is there a way that I can make a multi purpose poem please?
Fay

[> Re: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please? -- Caboobie, 19:24:33 07/29/04 Thu [1]

Yes that was my thought. but it's 00.26 here so I'm a little tired now, I'll try to think up a general poem using the letters tomorrow, unless one of the others beat me to it. lol.

[> Re: Use for cute coloured alphabet letters please? -- Fay in Australia, 05:40:00 07/30/04 Fri [1]

Thank you for the above. I will be grateful for any further suggestions.
The letters are cute, but for some reason every letter is there except a D.

Hello everyone,
I have plaster of paris teapots/magnets...I have this poem

When the world is all at odds,
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea
There is magic in its’ fragrance,
There is solace in its’ taste,
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
author unknown

and I have all the short thank you poems for the teabags/friendship
Would love to have something different for the teapots..
sort of a friendship..thank you...brewing a pot of tea...warmth and kindness of your friendship...for all the things you've done...friends come and go...thank you for being my friend...sometimes we are far apart but together in our hearts..hope this is enough to get creative juices flowing...how about a 6-8 line poem?...plesseeeeeeeee...*SMILE*

I got this in an e-mail a while back. It is not my writing and I don't have an author for it. It may be a bit too long, but just too beautiful not to share.

DRINKING FROM MY SAUCER

I've never made a fortune
and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much,
I'm happy anyhow.

And as I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough.
But I've got loving ones around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has overflowed.

O, Remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe
about the tough rows that I've hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed

If you have a Michael's store, they have a sheet of magnet for 9.99. They usually have a 40% off coupon every week in the newspaper so it is really a bargain. My daughter makes magnets and loves doing it. They have two types of magnet sheets. You have to get the once that has a sticky paper that you can peel off. Works best. read the box well. The other one comes in a box but you hasve to glue stuff to it, messy.

Hi Karen and Welcome, You'll find lots of Karens here... seems to be a popular crafter name! lol I know three of them join in our craft swaps regularly.

Those are great ideas for laminating onto sheet magnet. I think you could also cut away some of the background depending on what is in the picture, to give it more character and even trace it some with dimensional paint.

Good Luck,

I too have been lurking, but I have another idea for you so I thought I would share. You could use a large (1" or more) flat glass marble, cut a portion of the postcard to fit, glue it in place with a clear adhesive, then glue on a strong magnet.

Oriental trading has some cute little rolling pin ornaments. I make the cinamon spice ornament kits, and attach a rolling pin to the bag. They are really cute. Judy R

Hi ShawnA, hope this helps you in your project which I think is a great idea...

Rolling out dough is hard work
But these shapes are easy to make
Lovely cookie magnets to look at
Though they're not good to eat or bake!

Subject: craft that was on her the other day

The other day someone had the two picture one was of a butterfly and one had a ladybug. I was trying to tell them how cute and the board would not let me post. I wanted to know about that and what you use them for. They would be cute for the after school kids I watch to make.
Thanks.

Air Freshener Magnet

Subject: Air Freshener Magnet

I went to a craft show in Smithville NJ today and I saw a Air Freshener Magnet. It was a 3X5 graphic with a magnet on the back and some how it was made to smell Does anyone know how to make there. The man would only tell me that they a candle company. The name on the package is Sniff-it.

Re: Air Freshener Magnet -- birdhousebonnie, 19:34:59 10/07/06 Sat [1]

Is this what you are describing? http://www.jerseylitecandle.com/store/sniff-its.html

Re: Air Freshener Magnet -- rosemary, 22:26:59 10/07/06 Sat [1]

Yes that is it would anyone know how to make them. Rosemary

Re: Air Freshener Magnet -- jazbo, 06:45:45 10/08/06 Sun [1]

Don't know if this would work or not, but it might be worth a shot. Cut your basic shape from fun foam. Add a graphic, or not. Then add a couple of drops of essential oil on the back, after gluing on the magnet. Would the oil soak through & stain the graphic? Don't know.

Or print off your graphic on heavy paper & try that.

Re: Air Freshener Magnet -- rosemary (Happy), 07:35:12 10/08/06 Sun [1]

I took the one I bought and open the package up. Inside was a cardboard soak with candle oil. So simple it could be made with a seed package template and them put the cardboard in that.

Cookie Cutter Flower Magnet

Subject: Make a cookie cutter flower magnet

Cookie Cutter Flower Magnet

Materials:
A recipe of Cornstarch Dough
Cornstarch for dusting
Rolling pin
Cookie cutter
Magnets (not strips)
White glue
Acrylic paint, colors of your choice or food coloring
Zipper type plastic bags

Instructions:
Sprinkle cornstarch on waxed paper covered surface. Place the cornstarch dough and roll to approximately 1/8" thickness. Using the cookie cutter dipped in loose cornstarch cut out the shapes of the flower and place them on a rack to air dry at least overnight.

Note: If the humidity is high it may take longer than overnight to dry thoroughly.

If you did not add food coloring as you made the dough paint the flowers now and allow them to dry. Glue a magnet to the back and they are ready to give as a gift or use yourself.

Cornstarch Dough

This dough is similar to the bread dough but easier for children to manage and work with and it dries a bright white making a very good surface for painting. The amounts are not exact so you may need to add more glue or cornstarch to achieve the consistency of a rolled cookie dough.

In the zipper type bag place 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and one tablespoon of a medium thick white craft glue. Zip the bag expressing most of the air and knead through the bag until the cornstarch has all been incorporated and it forms a ball. It is during the kneading portion that you may need to add a little more cornstarch or glue depending on how sticky your dough is. Knead until smooth. May take approximately 5 minutes
