VIDEO: How to make decorations from baby footprints
How to Make Footprint Decorations for a Baby Shower -- powered by eHow.com
Baby footprints are a sweet theme to use for a baby shower, bris or christening. And it's easy to do with either clip art footprints, or if the baby has already been born, by taking the actual footprint of the baby. You can use a water-based stamp pad. You can even find stamp pads in colors to match the baby's sex or your color theme.
As shown in the video, you can add them to paper or plastic glassware and favor boxes but you can also scan the footprint and then put it on the invitations, name tags, place cards for sit down events, affix to balloons, or blow them up into giant posters.
If you want, you can even take the print or scan of your baby's footprint and have it turned into a rubber stamp so you can personalize everything for your shower. From crepe paper to table cloths to wrapping paper - you're only limited by your imagination.
Footprints are as individual as fingerprints, so for party decor that no one else will ever have, try the baby footprint them.
