Makin's Clay has these great Memory Frames
which I knew would be a perfect gift
to make for my daughter...
and my new Grandson!
While this project is not complete....
I want to show you how the process
and how Velcro Brand Adhesive makes it easy to finish
when the time is right!
There are several Memory Frames to choose from
I choose the Double Turning Frame
Each kit comes with a package of
so that you are able to capture
a foot print, hand print or
to create something for the frame.
I rolled out the clay.
I used footprint rubber stamps
to create temporary footprints
for the Memory Frame,
as Jaxson is only a month old;
I will take his foot impressions
when he is about 3 months old
and his beet are a bit stonger
to be pressed for a good impression.
These are small so there is enough left over clay
to use for the real foot impressions,
just be sure to keep the left over clay in a
zip lock bag to keep it from drying out.
Let these dry completely
which can take about 48 hours
depending upon thickness.
Once dry I used Velcro Brand Press and Close Fasteners
on the back of the clay impressions.
and also on the fabric which I used as a backdrop
in the frame. By using the Velcro Brand Adhesive
it will be easy to change out the
rubber stamped impressions for
the real ones once they are made!
Here are two sides of the frame,
if you follow my blog you may recognize
that the lettering and background
match the curtains and boarder
I made for the nursery ...
The letters here were made from left over
Donald Duck pictures I had.
Here is another way the frame can look,
the picture side is not finished yet,
since it in a shadow box, I want to find
a small Donald Duck to put in there at the
bottom to go with the theme of
Here is another way the frame can go,
of course the real footprints
will take up a bit more room than these
which will fill up this side of the shadow box better.
Here is another way the frame can go.
This photo shows how easy it is
for the frame to turn.
These make great gifts....
