Hand Print Flower

The Sunday Showcase


My son and I made this for my niece awhile ago and I completely forgot about it until I went to my sister's house and saw it on the wall.  

I absolutely love it and think it can be used for any occasion for a boy, girl, parent, or grandparent.  I don't have any pictures of the process, but it is very simple.  

I traced and cut out his left and right hands and did his right hand in one color and his left in another.  I used foam instead of paper, but it would work with any paper.  I would suggest using card stock or attach it to card stock so that it can stay firm.  


I cut out a circle and a stem and leaves.  I glued everything together using craft glue and alternating the left and the right hand cutouts.  

I used a picture of the kids together in the middle and I had my son tell me things he likes about his cousin.  He was only 2 so I had to help him out a little!  

I wrote on it with a Sharpie permanent marker and TaDa, you have a handprint flower!
