Homemade Christmas Card Handprint Tutorial...

Seeing as my initial vision of a Christmas Card photo didn't exactly go according to plan... Here is plan B which I actually kind of love.

My first crafting session with my baby girl... Relatives, loved ones, friends... Await your masterpieces... 





Lesson

Blank cards £2 for 12 + stamp ink (£5 each colour) left over from baby blessing handprint masterpieces = WAAAAAAAAAY cheaper than bought Christmas cards!

  7. these really are delightful - a gorgeous card and a lovely memory. We tried doing handprints and footprints with my grandie one year, he wiggled and squirmed and wasn't happy, until eventually my son said "enough"!
    Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Mosaic Monday.

  10. Hi there. I love these card you made this year. I came across your blog today as I was searching for ideas on how to get my baby's hand prints into Christmas cards. Could you please tell me what ink you used? I'm worried if I get the wrong kind I won't be able to wash it off my baby's hands afterwards? Thanks for your time, Sabina

    1. Hey! I used stamp ink I found in The Range... It was non toxic and child safe. I'll try to find a link xx
