I love anything that records milestones and that ultimately can be stuck into a scrapbook! I love looking back over them, and even in the short three years of having children, I love to reminisce.
So leading up to this christmas I wanted to make something christmassy that showed the ages and sizes they are, so we decided to go for a hand print theme. I then stating playing around with some red felt and decided to put christmas hats on the, and then got some cotton wool and made the strips and ball balls.
I cut everything out and put it all together, popped it into a frame and this was the result! A lovely little keepsake and something that would be quite cool to bring out every year, even when they are 25 and put it on the fireplace…ok so I don’t have a fireplace, but we are being christmassy here so go along with it!
I think this could be adapted individually to make Christmas cards as well.
What do think?
