Getting the handprints were the most difficult part to get. Getting a handprint from a 20 month old is difficult. My 3 1/2 year old was happy to give a good handprint. I traced around our hands and then settled on a design for placement. Then I printed out the text that I wanted the word "love" and the year "2016." Then I placed it on contact paper and cut it out with an Exacto knife.
As for the fabric paint, I used white, and the pouncer I purchased a while ago from Amazon, a Martha Stewart product, is amazing.
I was really please with the results and the hubby liked it too!
