One of the best parts about Craft Week is learning about all of the crafting that my readers have been up to! One of my readers, Sunshine, was kind enough to share this craft using your child’s handprint to make beautiful paper lilies. What a perfect gift this would make for Easter or Mother’s Day! You can get directions to make your own Handprint Lilies at the DLTK’s website.
Sunshine offers a few tips that she learned after making the ones shown in these photos:

* Use cardstock in several pretty colors instead of construction paper (but not too thick!)
* Green floral tape makes the straws look more like real stems
* Pick up a vase at the Dollar Store
Thank you for sharing this wonderful craft using our child’s handprint, Sunshine!
Update: Here is the poem, it seems to not be showing up in the directions for some reason, but it comes from DLTK’s website.
This isn’t just a lily as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand which God made a part of me.
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you have a very, special Mother’s Day!
If doing it with a secular group (school, etc) substitute “which is a part of me” for “which God made a part of me” If doing it for Easter, substitute “special Easter Day” for “special Mother’s Day”
