From: Crafts by Amanda What You'll Need: 1/4 cup of salt, 1/4 cup of water, 1/2 cup of flour, a bowl, a cookie sheet and pebble gravel How to Do It: Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Have your gal take the salt, water and flour and mix together thoroughly in the bowl to create the dough. Roll her creation into a ball and flatten out on the cookie sheet. Then, she can take the pebbles and spell out a special message for Dad (or whoever is left on her shopping list). Bake in the oven for two hours or until dry and stiff, then let it cool afterwards overnight. It's the perfect paperweight!
