Perhaps this is the reason that baby ink footprints are all over invitations as well as the nursery walls. There are lots of ways to use these footprints to decorate stuff that you make by printing the images on sheets of paper with your inkjet printer or by stamping your footprints and handprints on gifts using rubber footprint stamps.
We have become so accustomed to transferring our baby footprint graphics or pictures of baby footprints onto our crafts using the computer that we’ve forgotten the old fashioned way of using baby footprint stamps to get our images in place. It’s easy to see why we have become so dependent on computers and printers to do the job. The process is so simple; find some free baby footprint clipart online, then all you need is your paper, a cartridge full of pink, baby blue or black ink in some knowledge of a photo editing program you will be good to go.
BABY HAND AND FOOTPRINT PICTURE FRAMES
Modern technology is wonderful and I wouldn’t begin to tell you to forget about using this method of printing your baby shower invitations or announcement cards, but what if you have a wonderful baby shower gift idea that you want to personalize with a pair of baby footprints only to realize that your handy, dandy computer printer is useless? These situations are where inexpensive baby footprint stamps shine.
Here are some gift ideas for mom or dad items that could be personalized with the use of your baby footprint stamp kit:
Cloth BBQ aprons for dad with baby’s footprint on the pocket or bib of the apron
A fabric tote bag or diaper bag. Images made with your baby hand and footprints along with baby’s monogram will make a special personalized gift (cheap!)
A picture of baby that you have framed with a special mat stamped with baby’s footprints in pink or blue
These are just a few craft projects where a baby footprint stamp kit will be very helpful. Don’t forget that you can use colored inks, a heat gun and some sparkle powder to make your baby footprint graphics shine! If you are using your baby footprint stamps on cloth items, it’s a good idea to dry iron the baby footprint ink to permanently set it so that the ink won’t run when washed.
