Mix the above 3 ingredients until combined thoroughly. I will add that the recipe calls for 4 cups of flour, but I probably had to add another 1/2 to 3/4 cups of flour to get a consistency that was pliable enough to roll with the rolling pin without being sticky.
Roll out with rolling pin until it is about 1/4 in or less thick.
FYI-depending on the size of the cookie cutter you may get more or less ornaments.
Use cookie cutters to make individual ornaments.
Place on cookie sheet, make a hole at the top for the ribbon to go through and bake for 2 hours at 200 degrees. Do not turn the ornaments over. However I do turn over once they are out of the oven so that the it dries completely.
Once dried, paint and design as desired, place ribbon and hang on tree!
