Handprint Santa

December 7, 2010 Sarah Coggins

I love getting crafty with my little guy and last year, I dared to pull out the paints with a 5 month old to do so. Thanks to help from the high chair I managed to paint his right hand white and help him make a handprint onto red cardstock. Once it was dry, I began the process of turning it into Santa using a variety of supplies from my scrapbooking stash.

The end result:

I then scanned it in and resized to approximately 3″ x 4″.  I printed the smaller images onto photo paper and used the laminate/magnet cartridge in my Xyron to create magnets.  Each of the grandparents received one as part of their Christmas gift.

Supplies: acrylic paint; red & white cardstock; Provo Craft & We R Memory Keepers patterned papers; black stamp ink; Making Memories snaps; Stickles; black marker; buttons.
