Both prints are 11x14. I first tried on an 8x10 sheet of cardstock, but Addilyn's little 3 month old feet took up more space than I anticipated. There was no way I could get the whole word on there to scale. So, I took some poster board I had lying around and cut it to size. Tip: 1 standard size poster board cuts perfectly into 4 11x14 rectangles!
I used my silhouette machine to cut out the pieces. The letters in the "love" one are all vinyl. I measured each side of the paper so the letters would be even from each side. Then I stamped Addilyn's sweet little feet and placed them each individually in the shape of a "V".
For Reagan's hand print art I cut a heart out of cardstock and centered it on the 11x14 print with a little bit of tape underneath. I used a black hand stamper and let her go to town...with a little bit of guidance! Then I took some gold craft paint I had on hand and globbed it onto a plate. Then I spread it thin and wide so her hand would fit. She was happy to smack on top of the black prints! Be sure to rotate the piece a couple times, so it looks more random! Once it was all dry, carefully peel off the cardstock heart.
I haven't even opened Addilyn's baby book, but at least I have this sweet memorabilia!
This is a perfect last minute craft for Valentine's if you have the supplies! I had everything on hand for this, so it cost me $0!
