As parents, we know that our babies will grow. I was warned by friends and family that it will happen so quickly.
I am so happy that each of our kids have something that they can look back and see just how tiny and precious they were in their first few months of life.
Baby hand print is a popular craft that many parents do when their babies are born. But you don't have to do it only when they are first born. We did this hand print with Elias just before he had heart surgery. It is a special ornament for us to see how tiny he was at 4 months.
Babyprints ornament is a kit definitely worth getting for this coming Christmas. It is not only a keeper for you but it is also a good gift for grandparents too! This kit needs no mixing and no baking. There is everything included for you to make a precious ornament : Impression material, rolling pin, shaping ring, ribbons (green and red) and a hole punch.
Check out the video below.
The instructions are very easy to follow.
First, you place aluminum foil or wax paper on a flat object. (Aluminum foil or wax paper is not include in the kit. This one you may need to get from your kitchen.)
Next you have to knead the impression material for 2-3 minutes. Make sure that you open the package when you are ready to make it so you won't spoil it.
Place impression material on the foil and flatten it. Use the roller until material is smooth and flat. You need to make sure that it is thick enough to get a good impression.
Now this is the time that you have to put your baby to work. Wet his/her hand or foot and press into material and then remove. I did this when Elias was sleeping. I did flip it over after I pressed his hand in it and wrote down the date on the back of the ornament. (I just wanted to make it even more special and unique.)
If you don't like how it looks, simply knead it and start it all over again. I did mine 4 times before I decided to keep it.
When you like what you see, use the shaping ring to trim the edges. Then make a hole for your ribbon. Leave completed print in shaping tool on the foil or wax paper to dry for 8-10 hours. (No need to bake it!)
Then carefully flip over to allow the bottom side to dry. Leave it for 2-3 days for total drying.
Last but not least, string with ribbon. :)
