Handprint Swans for February ~ Handprint Calendar 2

***The handprint swans are an original design by the blog author.***

How sweet! These Handprint Swans are perfect for a Valentine's Day art project. Wouldn't they be the cutest thing for a set of twins? I was making handprint ducks awhile back and thought that it would be cute to turn his hands into swans too! I looked at clip art images of swans to come up with the perfect look. The hardest part is getting the handprints to look somewhat the same so it creates a heart-shape. My little guy's fingers smudged a little while I was trying to place them down. To fix the messy look of the white handprints, I cut around the fingers and then across the page (see photo). I then glued it to a blue piece of card stock to create water. I embellished it with the foam stickers I bought for Valentine's Day and printed a tiny calendar for the month of February.
