                         DECORATION DIRECTIONS
   TO DECORATE: Make small 1/2 slit in top crust of each
   loaf; insert shinny copper penny. Tie loaves with
   ribbon and decorate with small sheaf of wheat or other
   grain, dried flowers, silk flours or dried berries.
   Attach friendship note which will follow on last note.
   TO PRESERVE BREAD: Allow loaves to dry in cook dry
   place for several days until VERY HARD. Spray or brush
   clear, glossy polyurethane or spray clear, glossy
   resin around loaf. Let dry; repeat with second coat.
   When dry, decorate as desired.
   TIP: Loaves may be brushed with mixture of 1 egg white
   and 1 tbsp. water before baking. If desired, sprinkle
   with sesame or poppy seed.
   For crusty topped loaves, set small pan of water in
   oven while bread is baking. History and Friendship
