Time is passing by so fast and they get bigger each day and having this personalized foot prints hanging on your wall would be a great project you would love to keep for a long time.

This was not my original idea, I’ve seen this circulating on internet and gave a try with a little changes on the materials mixture ratio. I made foot prints when my daughter was few months old and hand prints when she was almost 2. The result was great.  Both were father’s day gift.
