Baby Craft Footprint Photo Frames
Theres no arguing that a baby photo frame makes a nice gift, but who says you cant make one for yourself? If youve ever had a baby shower, then youve no doubt received a baby photo frame or two as a gift. Even if you do get more than one during a baby shower, you know that there will be many pictures taken of your baby that youll have to supply your own frame for. You know your child is special, so why not create a baby photo frame which has your childs footprint captured for eternity? Its a lot easier than you might think.When you sit and hold your baby, you might do the same things that other parents do, such as play with the childs fingers and rub those tiny little feet. Nothing comes close to being as sweet as a child, especially the newborns. This time is so special, youd love for it to last forever, but you know that isnt possible. There are ways that you can preserve a moment in time so that youll be able to look back from the years which lay ahead, and feel that special feeling once again. Making a permanent imprint of your babys foot can be accomplished in more ways than one. You can decide which one best suits your needs. Since youre going to be making an impression of your babys foot, you want to use a method that poses no potential for harming your child. Do not, under any circumstances, use regular run of the mill plaster to make an impression of your childs hands or feet. Plaster heats up while setting, and will easily burn tender skin, so please dont do anything which may harm your baby.To safely make a baby footprint photo frame, you can use an ink kit which has special inks that wont harm the fragile skin of your baby. These inks work well in capturing detail, and clean up reasonably well. Using this type of kit, you can make a finely detailed footprint in ink and incorporate it into your baby photo frame. One way to do this is by using a frame large enough for both the childs photo, and the ink stamp of your childs foot. This kit comes with a special type of molding material that doesnt heat up, and it sets quickly. The footprint is then ready to display beside your favorite baby photo! Some pre-made baby photo frames have generic footprints of babies feet embedded in them, too, but its more special if it comes directly from your babys own foot.
