(off of one of our summer to do)
I got this great idea from smashedpeasandcarrots
who got this great idea from: the crafty crow
I think they are just so sweet!
I got some sculpey
(is it pointless to say I got if for 40% off. It’s just kind of a given right?)
I got a pearl color so it has sparkles in it.
rolled it out
took some cookie cutters:
(started with the big hearts…..changed my mind….then decided to do our whole family– two big hearts (adults) three small hearts (our kiddos)
pressed our little fingerprints in and put in a pan to harden in the oven
(just followed the instructions on the package)
oh and I poked holes for the jump ring (before cooking!)
wrote on names and dates
and had to make my own jump rings because my hearts were too fat!
I used a crimp bead and added some beads…and decided that if I wore this is a necklace I would have a backache from carring this weight around.
so I turned it into a little hanging decor for my rearview mirror.
combined all the strings together
glued them together using clear nailpolish
added this hook
I already had an air freshener in my car…
so I cut off the air freshener and used the string to hang my fingerprints
I also thought that these would be so cute as a keychain
or you know those family home evening charts that have the pegs..these would be cute as the name tags for them.
and my kids made one into a keychain for mother’s day
