Mother's Day #2

WARNING! IF YOU ARE MY MOTHER OR MOTHER IN LAW OR CANNOT KEEP A SECRET DO NOT READ!!!

Okay, so moving is taking WAY more time than it should! But here is another quick, easy, fun and CUTE present for Mother's Day! I saw this idea awhile ago and more recently but I cannot remember where I saw it- if you have seen it too- tell me where. (the hands are in red polka dot fabric, with little trees in the corner! The little girl's name is something really cute.)



Anyways, my good friend and I were talking about what to do for Mother's Day and TADA we did these! By the way said friend is a self professed non-crafter and hers turned out SO cute- so go ahead and give this project a try.


Supplies:
8x10 Canvas
Scrapbook Paper
Modge Podge (of course)
Scissors
Cricut (not necessary but makes project easier)
Diet Coke
Pizza
Box of Oreos- to keep the 2yr. olds at bay

Step One: Cut out name. Trace hands of 2 yr old (stuff an Oreo in their mouth- they'll sit still). Cut out hands, and any embellishment you choose to add- I did flowers.


Step Two: Lay paper on canvas obsess about which way is best while sipping on Diet Coke, finally decide to go with way number one and modge podge.

Step Three: Let dry.


Step Four: Check 2 yr old's hands for cookie residue and then hand project to her for a picture. Get project back with an Oreo hand print and wipe off. DONE~

Repeat as many times as necessary including one for yourself since it's so dang cute!

Told you it was easy.

Linking to these FABULOUS parties!
