Family Hands Frame – Perfect Gift

This is a great gift for any time — Birthdays, Anniversary, Christmas for your spouse. (And maybe grandparents would like this too)

I used my 50% off Michael’s coupon and got this lime frame. LOVE IT. Our favorite color in this family.

We made this for Chad- for father’s day.

I had to fib– GASP– and have a reason to trace his hand. The kids told them they needed it for primary. We were all in on the big fib. ;)

Once we got all our hands traced and cut out (make sure you trace the same hand– everyone right or left. Cut them out and glue/tape them down on top of each other in order. Dad/Mom/Older to younger kids. :) Also I picked colors that sorta represented us too. Of course you can make a theme for your decor. But the colors actually go with each of us. (I have red hair — so red clearly is me haha)

I used my Silhouette machine and cut out vinyl letters to stick on the matt portion of the frame. And at the bottom added the year it was done.

Chad really did love this. More than I thought he would — but he is such a great dad. He hung it up immediately. :)

I saw this cute idea on — from this blog. I loved the idea so much knew it was my father’s day project for my hubby.

(**my son’s hand is almost as big as mine– he’s growing up so fast **)

    I stumbled across your blog and was instantly attracted to it when I read about the both of you being deaf. I blog about my life raising a son who is blind and autistic, as well as my husband having MS. Please, check me out sometime. :)

    Darling! I’m going to have to copy your idea. Thinking of having my daughter and DIL trace hands and send me copies then go from there. Thanks!

    I love this, I actually did the for Fathers Day this year. I took the kids to the scrapbook store and let them pick out a paper that best represents themselves. They loved it and so did their dad.

    Coming from the link up party! And your newest follower. Such a cute idea! We have a small canvas with our handprints painted on, so this is right up my alley!
