One of the most precious accents to a child's scrapbook pages is their handprint. Handprints are popular in baby books or grandparent scrapbooks. You can create a page border with tiny handprints or cut them out and strategically place them on your pages. You can also use them for backgrounds.
To make the prints, prepare a flat surface. Next, put acrylic paint into a paper plate. Now, have your child place his or her hands in the paint and then on your scrapbook surface, one at a time. Acrylic paint is easier to wash off their hands then other products or inks. When the paint dries, you will have a permanent record of your child's handprints.
Do this periodically as your children grow and you can see how their hands gradually get larger as they get older.
