November's craft - Fail :-(
There is a great tutorial for making these on the woodside kitchen blog and the ones shown there look really lovely.
I mixed up my ingredients, cooked it on the hob until I had a clay and then cut out and baked my decorations which I decorated with snowflake stamps... all good so far, however after baking only half the recommended time they and dried out, bubbled up, cracked and fallen apart.
So either used the wrong ingredients (quite likely as I substituted cornflour for cornstarch and baking powder for baking soda) or I baked these too long.
I think I had best stick to crochet & felt to finish up the rest of the Christmas decorations I need to make!
