4. Baby Feet Butterflies

Even if they are too tiny for crafts, they can contribute to a homemade gift. Dip baby’s feet in washable paint to create footprints. Turn them into butterflies with just a few swipes with a Sharpee. These are a lovely way to remember just how tiny those toes once were.

7. Flower Photos

A free printable background, cupcake liners, construction paper and favorite photos are all it takes to make these adorable flower photos. Photos of children’s faces are cut into 1.5 inch circles and pasted to the center of flowers. They can be presented as a card or in a picture frame with the glass removed to make room for the 3D flowers.
