Since you’re reading this article I guess that you have already done some initial thinking about creating a baby keepsake in the form of a baby handprint and maybe you have already created a few.
If you’re still uncertain of what baby keepsake to create or even how to do it, I strongly recommend that you spend some time reading the articles and information at my site as there are a lot of things that you’ll need to consider before getting started.
It might save you some time and agony and make sure that you do it right the first time around.
The first time you think of creating a baby keepsake it might seem overwhelming to you. I agree that there are a lot of things that you need to consider but once you have structured the process it isn’t a big task. It is pure fun most of the time in fact.
If you have already created the baby handprint in clay, mold, bronze or maybe a baby ink handprint on paper, then you’re ready for the next step.
A baby handprint created in clay or any other material is a great way to keep a memory of your baby, but it is difficult to share with friends and family if then don’t come around often.
Creating a baby ink handprint however, will have you ship the keepsake just as easily as if you had taken a picture of the baby handprint in e.g. clay.
One thing that you will have to make sure though, is that the ink you use has to be the right one and that the paper you put the baby handprint on is of the right quality. Otherwise you’ll risk loosing the keepsake in a matter of a few years and thereby loosing the special memory.
The best way to create an easy to ship baby keepsake that’ll last for a long time is to take a picture of it. When you have created the handprint in either material you can easily do a baby handprint picture.
It doesn’t matter whether you use a normal camera or a digital camera to take the picture. If you have both to choose from then I would recommend that you use the digital one as you’re then able to edit the picture.
Taking great pictures of objects are not an easy task and therefore it might cost you a little time and a lot of photos to get it just right. Be sure to have enough light at the keepsake so that the baby handprint picture will show all the little details that makes it so special.
