These are so cool. So simple to make. Make the footprint like shown above and use construction paper, sharpie markers and paint to finish. These would make great gifts for the grandparents or extended families or decoration in a nursery. I really love the hand print and footprint creations so many come up with.
These frames are easy to make for gifts and can contain a 2 pictures or artwork from a little one. You can obtain these at almost any stores these days and they are really cheap. You take the cardboard insert out and are going to use this as a guide to get a photo or a piece of artwork. If you want to print a photo out measure this and take the dimensions to your desktop publisher to prepare image for printing. If you are doing this from artwork or a photo already printed trace this onto your photo or artwork and cut out. If the photo or artwork isn’t big enough you can add a border to create a tight fit. On the outside you can glue jewels, sewing notions, stickers etc. You can do this on both sides and can add embellishments around the edges.

With a grandchild on the way I find myself thinking back to my kids growing up and wish we had preserved so much more of their creations and developments then we did. The notebooks full of their art, awards, programs, school work, report cards and such are wonderful to have. But I miss their tiny little feet and hands and wish I could go back and hold them once again. I found this recipe to make a stone for impressions of a loved ones hands and feet or impressions of keepsake like keys or jewelry etc. It made me wish we had done something similar to preserve the size of our precious little ones. Tell us how this project goes if you do one…. would love to see pictures.
