Hand Print Gifts

Today I finished making a Christmas gift for my children. Last month I had the opportunity to secretly snatch hand prints of my grandchildren. All four grandchildren were over I set up some finger paints and while they were busy painting I got hand prints from each child.

I cut out the hand prints and labeled the backs so no mismatched prints were made.
I printed out Names and the date of the prints for each child. I then printed out a hand print poem. You can find many different versions on line.

I had to test and fit everything before applying the mod podge.

I did get more wrinkles than I wanted. As I was smoothing the paper wanted to tear. I decided to just smooth the  best I could and leave them at that.

Oh Bonnie what a special gift. Your kids are going to LOVE this. I would probably need a box of tissues if my Mom did this for me. What a great Grandma and Momma you are <3
