Family Handprints Art

Saw this piece and wanted to share it with you. I love the idea o putting a hand print of Dad and Mom and then of each of their children on a white background and then having it framed. This would be a great idea to hang over a baby crib or to give to parents from their children on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day or for their anniversary. Would look great above a door or over a mantle for all to see. This would even be a perfect gift for two sets of parents to make for their daughter (bride) or son (groom) for a wedding present and decoration.

Mother’s Day / Father’s Day / Baby Shower Card

mother day mother's grandma craft child gift art fun plaqueWhat a great idea for a card for Mom on Mother’s Day.Fold a piece of construction paper (or card stock that you can decoupage on or color/paint a design on) and block outline the word MOM on one folded half. Make sure the top of MOM touches the top fold. This does not have to look perfect by any means – letters can be rounded out or have some waves in them. Be creative and have lots of fun. Decorate the front with stickers, glitter, colored glue, paint, etc. When done trim once again to give the edges a clean look. You can do this same design using the words DAD for Father’s Day or BABY for a baby shower or how about the name of the recipient?

Paper Wrapping Storage

36497_524872520870544_62014369_nSo now the holidays are over and you have that leftover wrapping paper – and the questions comes up of what exactly to do with them. This creative idea was shared by Barbera Lipten and is much appreciated. Use four eye hooks and wire thinned than bailing wire. My wife and I still just take the remnants and carefully fold them down to go into storage with our Christmas decorations. We will even do this with brand new rolls of paper. But this idea is really great for the everyday paper for us. Birthday paper, baby etc. It also makes it so the paper is very handy to get to and put back.
