DIY: Thank You Cards


Henry's sending out a handful of these guys as a thank you to everyone who sent him a birthday gift this year. We painted his hands in five different colors of Crayola Tempura paint and stamped them in a row on a large piece of white computer paper. When it was dry I took it down to Kinkos and made a few copies, pasted each hand print on colored paper, and stuck a magnet on the back.

Now grandma and grandpa can have Henry's messy prints all over the stainless steel appliances....just like he's really there!

GREAT idea. BTW, how many inches long are Henry's legs, from his ankles up to mid-thigh? I want to make him a pair of longies for a belated birthday gift. :)
