Memory Frame Kit Baby Design

Makin’s Clay has a great selection of Memory Frame Kits so that you can create your own One of a Kind design.  When my first grandchild Blake was born I could not think of a better way to capture that memory than with one Makin’s Memory Frame Kits.  I was able to make an impression of his feet into the Air Dry Polymer Clay for his parents to treasure forever; (for this I waited until he was about 3 months old).  The kit comes complete with Frame, Clay, Mini Clay Roller, Mat Frame and Acrylic.  Add your favorite scrapbooking papers and pictures to get started on making your own Original Memory Frame.
