We recently joined in with Red Ted Art's 31 Days of Love 2015.
We created a salt dough footprint keepsake which was shared over 35,000 times! Seeing as you enjoyed the keepsake so much we decided to create another salt dough keepsake - this time using hands.
We used our Simple Salt Dough Recipe to make the dough. Little N enjoyed helping to measure out the ingredients. I mixed in the hot water and used my hands to form a playdough type consistency, once it had cooled down. Together we rolled out the dough and Little N made two over-lapping hand prints.
I then used a sharp knife to cut around the hand prints and created a heart shape before leaving them to air dry for a few days. I then finished them off in the oven for a short time.
I used acrylic paints to paint the hand print keepsake.
I added the saying 'A hundred hearts would be too few to carry the love I have for you' using a black marker pen.
I sealed the dough using clear varnish but you can also use PVA glue.
So there you have it - another beautiful keepsake idea for friends and family.
