  • Step 1

    Directions:

    Step 1. Mix salt and flour then add water gradually until the consistency is dough-like. It shouldn't be sticky.
    Step 2. Knead dough until it's soft.
    Step 3. Roll it out to 0,5 cm thickness.
    Step 4. Cut out your hearts using cookie cutters.
    Step 5. Poke holes in the hearts, using a straw (for a string/ribbon)
    Step 6. Preheat oven to 100'C.
    Step 7. Gently transfer your hearts onto the baking paper-lined tray.
    Step 8. Place in the oven and bake for 3 hours.

  • Step 2

    For decorating, here is what I did:

    Step 1. Polish the edges of the hearts using sand paper.
    Step 2. Spray paint them with white acrylic paint
    Step 3. Play with the colors and paint different patterns with blue, peachy pink and neon pink paint
    Step 4. Wrap washi tape around them and stick your love notes under.
    Step 5. Cover the hearts with a thin layer of mod podge glue and decorate with gold leaf.
    Step 6. When the hearts are dry, thread string/ribbn through the hole and tie a knot.
