In fact, one of the only surviving piece of art I have from my own childhood (thanks to an unfortunate basement flood one winter) are my hands stamped in blue one a piece of construction paper. Sadly, the paper was not acid free and the paint was not colorfast, so it is slowly deteriorating. Use the tips and instructions in these wonderful projects to make sure your keepsakes last!
