Mother's day is tomorow and like the rest of you mamas out there, I'm sure every year, it just seems to go too quickly! These little ones grown too fast!!
I saw these cute little hand print heart cards on Pintrest that I had been meaning to try and thought that Mother's day was a perfect opportunity to try it out!
We tried many times, but I think maybe Natalie's hands are still too small to make to work as the cards I was hoping it would be, but at least I'm left with a cute little keepsake to always remember just how small her hands were!
To start, I took a piece of scrapbook paper, cut it half and then folded one of the halfs in half. So a 6X12 sheet.
I placed natatlie's hand on the edge where the fold was and tried to get her thumb and pointer finger to stay in a spot where when I cut it would be a heart. She didn't want to hold her hand very still after about the fourth time. haha!
then it was mommy's turn. Natalie loves taking turns tracing eachother's hands. :)
Practicing tracing her own hand
then we cut it out!
The finished product! Ideally you would have the pointer fingers touching too so that it makes a heart. I tried four or five times and I think her hands are just too small still to make it work right. Maybe this would be perfect for a 4-5 year old?
I still got a cute little keepsake to put in her scrapbook though so I can always remember how small her hands were. <3
Happy Mother's day to all of you!! <3Pin It Now!
