Hand Print

Mother’s Day Frame

Posted on

I was contacted a few days ago by a high school friend’s Mom for a Mother’s Day gift for her daughter. She sent me 2 pictures. Told me how she wanted to combine the ideas and she wondered if I could help her do it. I┬ádidn’t have to think twice. OF COURSE!!

Mothers Day FrameSupplies needed:

Picture frame (this one is an 8 x 10)

Paint for the handprint

Vinyl

Contact Paper

Cardstock (I used white)

She did the hard part in my opinion! Lol she had to get her sweet one year old granddaughter’s handprint. Just dip their hand in the paint or paint it on there with a paintbrush. Just make sure you have plenty of baby wipes handy. I promise you will not do this in one try. But it will be well worth the hassle in the end! Place the hand prints on the back of the glass. You could also do it on the paper you intend to use as backing but placing the handprint on the glass will allow you to change the color of paper if you choose later on to match decor. Sorry for the glare! But you get the picture.

Now get out your cricut and print out the saying. I used the font Tempus Sans ITC. The words measured a total of 9 x 6.25. This allowed just the right amount of space on each side in the 8 x 10 frame. Make sure to pay attention to your settings on your cricut or you will cut too deep like I did. Since it was only the heart and one o I was still able to make it work.

Use your contact paper and transfer the vinyl onto the front of your glass. Cut your cardstock you plan to use for the background and you’re ready to go!
