I made these as written, and they turned out pretty well. I rolled out to somewhere between 1/4-1/8 inch thick, and some still puffed up a bit, so I think next time I'll make sure to roll out to only about 1/8 in thick. I recommend spraying with polyurethane before painting, as well as after - I painted right on the surface of the dough, let dry overnight, and the next morning the paint was completely crackled all over - the moisture of the paint was sucked up by the ornaments. It still works for us (gives it an aged look), but if you want to avoid this spray a moisture-locking layer before painting. GIFT IDEA: I cut out gingerbread men shapes with my 4 year old son, and he painted them himself to give to his cousins. We'll be tying them onto the packaging of their "real" gifts.
