Hand print place mat keepsake

We took a Fall nature walk the other day to gather some pretty colorful leaves.  We made a fun keepsake place mat with the leaves and did a hand print turkey in the center.

This is a fun and easy craft to do with the kids.

Paper cut to the size you want
Mod Podge glue
Paint (we used brown cause we made a turkey hand print) this is optional as well
Paint brush

Then we laminated it. I took it to Staples and they did it for free but think it would have cost around $2.00. (Ask when you go if they give free samples cause you want to do it for a class project or say it is for a school)

To put together you just put your hand print on the paper, then glue the leaves.

NOTE: You don't want to let the leaves sit too long cause they get crispy and will crack when you laminate.

Thanks for stopping by to see what fun stuff we are doing. If you like what you see please come and follow us over on FB and Pinterest, would love to have you. Also, please feel free to share the fun things you are doing with us.
