Fingerprint Handprint & Footprint Keepsake Ideas

Fingerprints Handprint Footprint Plate - Keepsake Gift Ideas
There's something about a baby's tiny little feet or hands that make us all go gaga.  And something special about a fingerprint, that a one of a kind, truely unique mark, that can be left by an individual - irrespective of their age.  That's what makes fingerprints, handprints and footprints such popular keepsake themes.

With this in mind, we've gathered a few ideas for using fingerprints, handprints and footprints to create a special keepsake or gift that will be cherished.  Some of these you can buy through our website and others are simple but fantastic ideas that you can do at home.  We just had to share!

    This one is also great and something you could do at home with a plain mug and some enamel paint.

    If you'd prefer you could visit a local pottery pals (or similar ceramics painting workshpp/shop) and do it in one of their shops.

    I came across this on on Kaboose: read more.

    Probably one of the most obvious keepsakes when it comes to this particular theme, but it still deserves a mention as it is such a special keepsake.

    I love my fingerprint bracelet, it carries such sentiment and is a beautiful contemporary piece of jewellery.  More information / to purchase silver fingerprint handprint jewellery

    I Love this idea and it's certainly a keepsake I'll be keeping hold of.

    My daughter brought it home from nursery for a Mother's Day present - one of the best I've had so far.

    It was printed on card and laminated to keep it safe.

    This is an easy idea that you can create yourself.  When I say easy, I really mean that it's easy to get the materials you need, trying to get your baby or child to keep still whilst paint may be quite another story.  But there's some really helpful tips on Pippa's Long Stockings Blog.

    I have only come across these recently and there seem to be a fair few on the market.

    I love them, such a brilliant idea and had they been around when I got married, I definately would have used one.

    This particular one can be found on Esty here.

    Baby Hand / Foot Casts & Imprints.  

    There are so many on the market, this is such a popular gift to give to new parents.  There are lots of hand and feet imprints, but I much prefer the 3d casts - they are so lifelike and magically recreate the size and detail of a baby or child's hands or feet.  They are wonderful and can be done using baby casting kits at home, which is costs much less to getting them cast in a studio.

    Finally there is an abundance of ideas for handprints, footprints and fingerprints on the Handprint and Footprint Blog.  Take a look and I'm sure you will find a unique idea for inspiration.

    As always, we'd love to hear your comments and any ideas that you may have for creating keepsakes with your hands, feet or fingerprints.
