I saved the best for last because it is made for the season. It is a baby footprint ornament. Your baby's actual footprints on a glass Christmas ornament! How sweet is that?
This is what you need:
I would say if you can not find carbon paper then take a pencil and color all over the back of the footprint very well. When you trace it it will transfer the graphite outline.
Trace the print like above. Try to highlight the big crevices and notches, and not the little ones so much. Too hard to do with the X-acto knife
Both little feet traced
Using the X-acto knife, cut out the footprints
Do each one of the toes the same way and this is what it will look like completed.
Covered like a snowball. Let this stand for about 5 minutes. Then lift it off of the stick and cover the opening before running the whole thing under warm water! You do not want water getting inside the globe. You can't see the etching if you do until the insides dry out. Trust me.
Dry it off.
I add a few pink beads and a bow to the top
And now you have your baby's footprints to savor every Christmas
See, I told you it was sweet
Always being renewed,
