2 sheets tissue paper (20 x 26 inches each)
1 1/4 cups water
Preheat oven to 200°F. Crumble tissue paper. Place tissue in blender container; carefully push down close to blade. Add water. Cover; blend 15-20 seconds.
Place blended paper in colander; squeeze excess water out with hands or spatula.
Firmly press paper pulp evenly into Heart Cookie Mold. Blot any excess water from paper in mold using kitchen towel. Bake 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until paper is completely dry. (Do not over bake or edges will curl and turn brown.)
Remove paper decoration from mold; cool completely on cooling rack. If desired, paint with water colors or acrylic paints, or decorate as desired.
Yield: 1 decoration
Cook’s Tips: Paper decoration can be dried at room temperature for several days. Place a flat object over the mold to prevent edges from curling.
Even though this is a Christmas mold called, “Joy to the world”, I thought it appropriate for Valentine’s Day and this verse immediately came to mind. There really isn’t a greater love than this.
