How to Make the Salt Dough

Before you actually start creating these last minute Valentine gifts, you'll need to make the salt dough. It's very simple.
Mix 1 cup of salt with 2 cups of flour, and then add 1 cup of water. If the salt dough is too sticky, add more flour, and if it's to dry, add some more water. Next, get your rolling-pin and pastry-board, and roll out the salt dough.
Now, you're ready to start last minute Valentine gifts. Watch a video about salt dough making...

Step 1. Get your heart-shaped pastry cutter and cut out the heart shape from the salt dough. Step 2. Now, you'll need you thin stick to make the squared pattern. 'Scrape' the lines first as shown.

Step 3. Now, place the stick all the way over each lines to make nice and even. Step 4. Using the same stick, pierce a hole in the middle of the top square as shown.

Step 6. Paint the salt dough heart using the acrylic paints. The red and white are only tips: you don't have to use the same colours.

Step 7. Finally, string the red thread through the middle hole and make a knot on top of it, so that your sweetheart can hang up the finished Valentine heart somewhere.
