This December is special because our baby, Sophia, turned 5 months. I have been wanting to make an impression of her handprint ever since my husband saw a set of our godson's. I got the inspiration from Gummychild and her own project for her daughters with salt dough. I saw this kit from Babies R Us and thought I would see if it really was "No mess, no baking, no mixing". I was rather impressed with it. I took a handprint and then a "fist bump" impression. My husband likes to "fist bump" the baby. I thought it would make a nice reminder for him. P.S. I love her hands.
Then, I carved in the number 5 for 5 months with the sharp edge of a LED candle. I thought a cute little bird would be fun and added it with a bird stamp I had. The leftover impression material was used to make a name tag in the shape of a heart. I used an existing tag as a template. Then, I carved in her name with a black ballpoint pen. I figured the black would stand out against the white. I may trace it again with a black permanent marker once it has completely dried. I'll post the final product once it dries. What do you think?
