Add Your Pet’s Paw Prints You can use the following pages provided to capture your pet’s paw prints!

1. Open the metal binder to remove the blank pages provided. To avoid messes

we recommend spreading out newspapers or using a drop cloth on a flat surface under the blank pages.

2. Veterinarians have recommended using kid-safe washable stamp ink, children’s

non-toxic finger paints, or you can use vegetable based dyes you can make at home. http://www.ehow.com/how_2126823_make-vegetable-dyes.html

3. You can lightly saturate a small rag with the paint, dye or ink. 4. Gently, and evenly, press your pet’s paw(s) onto saturated rag. 5. Gently, and evenly, press paw(s) onto desired area of the blank pages. 6. Let pages dry for 1 hour, further personalize however you wish and place

pages back into Pet Journal.

7. Clean and dry your pet’s paws immediately after stamping pages to prevent

finding paw prints elsewhere and everywhere!
