Baby Footprints Birthday Decoration

Remember this post? Well, this is what I ended up doing with them for her party!

These were my supplies. I went a little nuts in the Martha Stewart section of Micheal’s but it was worth it!

I made this sign to hang on the front door. Nothing like some glue and glitter for a craft project!

And then made these to go in the front play room as decoration.

Each month had a foot print and a picture of her during that month. Before I pasted the original’s to the scrapbook paper, Peter scanned them for me and uploaded them to our computer so we always have a copy.

After the party, I took them down and put them all in a scrapbook as a keepsake.
I am so thrilled with how the decoration and scrapbook keepsake came out. Mostly, I am just stoked that I managed to keep my shit together long enough to remember to stamp her feet each month!

I am tempted to do it again for her second year, but maybe just do it quarterly, instead of monthly??

    That is too cute! I did one set of handprints on my daughter's first birthday (this past Nov. 18th) on a piece of fabric and everybody at her party signed it. I will do it each year and when she is 18 or 20 (have not decided yet) we will make a quilt or wall hanging out of the fabric squares. I also made a banner with her pictures from newborn through 12 months with a cute little decorative circle above each picture with the month. It turned out sooooo cute!
    I might try your idea for our next little bambino 🙂

    What do you use on her feet to make the print? Paint? This is an awesome idea.. I have an 8 week old baby and I will be starting this NOW! 🙂

    @KCooper…we used an ink pad. We have wipes ready to go near by and we wipe it off immediately. We just did her 24 month foot prints today, tear.
