Who doesn’t love thumbprint art? There is no end to what you can make with a stamp pad, a thin-tipped Sharpie, and your hands! In fact, Ed Emberley has written entire books with unique ways to make handprint art that will take any family far beyond the holidays, but the folks at Squidoo.com put a few of their favorites ideas together for Christmas cards.You might enjoy making some of these holidays scenes for cards, an art board, a scrapbook, or personalized gifts….maybe at a paint-your-own pottery studio.
And two of my favorites, especially for baby’s first Christmas, came from the fabulous Craft Rookie. Take a look!
