Monthly Craft Challenge


This month the craft challenge over at Heidi's Blue Eyed Blessings is photo projects-can't wait to get some ideas for Christmas gifts!


I haven't started any of my gifts yet (tsk, tsk) so I'm sharing something I made last year for my mom. My oldest daughter and I traced her hand and then cut two out of felt. I made a hole for her photo in one, glued them together with the photo in between and then put some ribbon on it. We made one for all my kids and my sister's two kids.

A handprint and photo all in one!!





Head on over to Blue Eyed Blessing to check out some great photo ideas and to Today's Creative Blog for some other great ideas!!

Oh how precious. I'm thinking this is what I'll do for the great grandparents this year. I love that they have their hand and picture that goes together, which will be a wonderful memory to look back on how little they were! Thanks so much, Dawn, for joining in this month's craft challenge!!

Dawn I am so glad you shared this! I've been looking for a really simple ornament to make with ER that included a handprint. This is perfect and I have tons of red felt!
