hey there! welcome to kristy.makes... a place where humor meets crafting & virtually nonexistent cooking skills. i like to read, bake & take pictures. i'll warn you that i rarely use proper capitalization, overuse sarcasm, and have a weakness for paranormal romance. i'm obsessive about memory keeping, instagram, & type. i use the word dude as both a noun & a curse word. stick around, i'm good for at least a laugh or two, if not with me, than at least at me!

diy: thumbprint bunny keepsake

in the spirit of my thumbprint heart keepsake this morning i decided to make this. 
it didn't turn out QUITE as perfect as the hearts.
(not that they were perfect either)
it's a little difficult to get a 7 month old to cooperate when ink & precise digit placement is involved.



but i'm embracing the imperfection of it & moving on.
it's going in the same frame as the thumbrint hearts went into,
& gracing the entrance of our home with a little festive easter spirit.

if you want to make one yourself all you need is:
-a piece of card stock the size & color you'd like
-ink in the color of your choice
-black pen
-willing fingers

ours were made by first pressing down the tip of the thumb for the body
& then just the tip of the pinkie for the ears.
draw on little eyes, a nose & some whiskers & you're done!

i'm thinking that i'd like to make season thumbprints for this frame from now on...
the hubs.. well, i'll have to work on him for the next one.. :)
