i have to admit this great idea is not mine, but i found it HERE. i was looking for something pretty straightforward to make, but something that would also melt the hearts of the kids’ grandma and mummo.
here’s what i did...
i chose a few pictures of the kids that i thought were cute, heart melting and characteristic of each kids personality. got the pictures printed, brought them home, gathered my supplies and got to work.
first, i chose a photo and started to cut around the kids silhouette pretty closely.
then using a glue stick i glued the photo to white card stock and had the kids draw on the back of their own photos. i wrote the year on the back, in case we ever do this project again.
then using clear laminant in a roll (whih i bought from our michael’s), i laminated each picture on both sides. i pressed down hard and used a ruler a few times to get all the air out.
i cut around again, but this time leaving a wee margin of laminant plastic, about 5mm.
then i punched a hole into the laminated photo, crocheted a quick rope and tied it on.
they looked AMAZING and each gran was super smiley once they’re gifts had been opened!
this is such a fun and easy craft to make and it was made better by involving the kids.
hey, father’s day is coming up next month!!!
and finally, my mother’s day locket; look at my beautiful boys!
see you tomorrow!
