Pour the mixture into a plastic lid, push the air bubbles to the edge with a spoon and set aside for about fifty minutes until flexible. Remove the gelatin from the lid. You can then use cookie cutters, or scissors to shape it. Finally dry the plastic by placing it between two pieces of wax paper (sticking out beyond the gelatin).
