Embossed Handprints Wall Hanging Tutorial

Jen Jockisch is always creating fun projects to share with you and today is no exception! We're going to learn how to make this embossed handprints wall hanging with step-by-step photos:

JenSupplies: 12x12 Cardstock White (71081) - AC Cardstock, Aqua Opaque Finish (27143) - Zing!, Grapefruit Opaque Finish (27135) - Zing!, Hardcover Aqautic (53138) - Thickers, Sunshine (72012) - Delights

Jen says, "I created a fun and simple project you can easily recreate and I love that you can make it with your kids. I will warn you that if you have a baby, it's a little more difficult to get a good image, but our 4 year old Ayla had a blast making this and it's something that I will treasure for years to come." 

What you need:
Foil (to catch messes made by kiddos who think embossing powder is fun to play in!)
American Crafts cardstock
Embossing Ink Pad
American Crafts Zing!
Wet wipes (for cleaning messy hands) 
Heat tool
American Crafts Delights
Frame with or without glass

Step 1 - Set some foil down and place a sheet of 12x12 cardstock on top. Have your inkpad and Zing close by. 
Julyblog1 Step 2 - Ink your kiddos hands. My 4 year old Ayla wanted to do hers herself, but I helped and made sure her hand was really well covered in ink.
Julyblog2Step 3 - Place hand on cardstock. I pressed down on top to make sure we got a really good image. 
Julyblog3Step 4 - Sprinkle on Zing! embossing powder and shake off the excess back into the jar.

Step 5 - Emboss with a heat tool.

Step 6 - Cut the cardstock to fit your frame (alternately, you can start with the correct size cardstock).

Step 7 - Add Thickers with the names and ages of the participants.
Julyblog4Step 8 - Add a Delights dimensional sticker to the bottom right corner.

Step 9 - Place the cardstock in the frame and adhere with tape to the matboard. I took the glass out because of the dimension of the Delights embellishment. 
Julyblog5 Now your children's handprints will be preserved forever in a cute and adorable frame!

Thanks for stopping by! The weekly giveaway is coming up in a few hours - see you then!
