I came across this craft project awhile ago. I thought it would be a cute gift for grandparents, but my Jilli was still too wiggly for me to trace her hands.
Since it was Grandparents Day, I decided to go for it and make something like this.
I put her hands on the scanner (she added her face!) and got a pretty good image of one of her hands--the other hand had the fingers turned (a copy machine would work too). I printed it, cut it out and traced it onto construction paper.
I don't have a picture of the finished project, but it turned out nothing like the lilies in the picture--it had been awhile since I saw this craft, so what I ended up with was basically handprints on a green pipe cleaner and put in a vase. Still cute because it was Jilli's hands.
I used the handprint on the left and it will make for some cute handprint turkeys for Thanksgiving!
