Baby Footprint Butterfly


Preserve and share those precious little footprints! Hudson and I made our own Mother's Day cards for the grandmothers, but this would be perfect for a birthday card as well. Time flies and those little feet will never be this small again. Also this is a great way to share the moment with family.

I stamped the prints onto a 4"x6" card so that it can easily slip into a sleeve of a photo album. Of course, do the stamping when the baby is either asleep or very, very subdued. Just draw in the the butterfly body and antenna and voila! After making the cards for the grandmothers I had to make one for myself for my scrapbook...which I'll start someday. Now I'm trying to think of other ideas for feet or hand printing on cards.

  1. I love this! I was thinking of doing something like this to put up in my daughter's room...which is decorated with butterflies.

  2. I love this idea so much. In fact I'm getting my son's foot print butterfly tattooed. Thank you for such a great idea

  3. I've seen the footprints the opposite way, but I love this one so much more! I just wish I had seen this when my first was tiny.
