Personalized Thank You's

For Olivia's thank you gifts I wanted something that everyone would display. I know there are abundance of gifts you can get online or in stores that are a little *tacky* (in my personal opinion). So when I started thinking about what to give everyone, I became inspired by a frame where you made a print of the child's hand and gave it to everyone. That's how this craft project started. I cut all the paper and bought finger paints. My original intention was to put paint on her hand and make a hand print for everyone.

Let's just say Olivia had a different vision. Once the paint was on her hands she began squishing and moving all around. I finally gave in and let her creativity flow. Once a card was "finished" I would give her a new one. If she ran out of paint I would smear a bit on the paper and let her keep going.

Over the course of 2 days, with over 200 pictures I got one great picture. I bought some simple white picture frames from Ikea and a bit of raffia to wrap it all up.

Finished project

Thank you everyone, Love Olivia.
