With the fingerprint portrait, you get to have an amazing piece on your wall that your baby will never outgrow. All you need to do is use a fingerprint collection kit sent to you from the makers, and leave them to make your little baby prints into an amazingly-personalized work of modern art. Plus, you can even order your preferred color combinations to make it even more personalized. With a fingerprint portrait, you don't have to match this piece of keepsake with your nursery. In fact, you might even want to display this at your office for your whole company to see.

    Keepsakes for personal use.
    If you are a parent, start collecting the keepsakes, and when you're done with your project, you have to place it in a nice storage box. Start by lightly stuffing puffy sleeves and hats using your acid-free tissue paper. Lay these items onto a layer of tissue. Add more tissues when needed and be sure a tissue is securely cushioned on each item's fold to prevent heavy creasing. Secure the items in your storage box. Do the same steps with each item.

    Adding scent.
    To add scent, wrap a few sprigs of lavender with tissue paper and place them inside the box, making sure that the lavender does not directly touch the keepsakes.

    Storage.
    When storing, choose a cool dry place. Don't place the keepsakes in places with extreme temperature like garages, basements or attics. Ideally, an interior space is perfect, but you have to keep these items from pipes that might burst. Places near exterior walls should also be avoided. When it comes to keeping toys and other keepsakes, you need to consider three important things: How much the item is loved, how big the item is, and how well should the item be kept. So store a keepsake that is worth keeping! Making baby keepsakes is a daunting project, but the memories that go with these things will last a lifetime. Find out what important baby items are well worth keeping and do your own baby keepsake projects today.
