Welcome to Week #3 with my guest bloggers! This week I’d like to introduce you to Kendra from Kreative Creationz. I have been following her for some time now and really enjoy all her crafty ideas. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
Hello, Everybody! I’m Kendra and I blog at Kreative Creationz. My blog focuses on creative beauty, cooking, crafting, and everyday living.
I would like to thank Melanie for allowing me to stop by and share a mommy post with you all today. Well, this is actually more of a grandma post than a mommy post. My mom came to visit us for a month while my husband was away for training with the Army. We enjoyed spending so much time with her!
Over the weeks we took lots of pictures, went on walks, and did arts and crafts. The craft that I’m sharing is a great one for a grandparent and grandchild to do together. It’s fairly simple, but very sentimental. Enjoy!
What You Need 2 Different Colors of Acrylic Paint 2 Sponge Brushes 2 Pieces of Vellum Paper, Cut the Same Size White Card Stock, with Poem Printed on It Colored Card Stock, Cut the Same Size as the Vellum Paper Glue Single-Hole Hole Punch Ribbon Decorative Flower
Directions With each person using a sponge brush and their own separate color, paint the left hand. Firmly press the hand onto vellum paper. Lift hand straight up off of paper.
Make sure you immediately wash the child’s hand or they may be compelled to paint their face and Grandma’s. (Yep, it really happened!)
Allow the paint to dry. Once the paint is dry, make sure that the little hand fits properly over the large hand.
Cut the white card stock so it can be framed by the colored card stock. Glue the white stock to the colored stock. Let dry.
Lay the small hand print on top of the large print and lay the card stock on top of the small print. Using the hole punch, place a hole at the center top of all three layers.
Tie a ribbon through the holes and attach a flower at the top for decoration.
