Supplies Needed For This Fingerprint Craft Idea:
This craft supply list is minimal, and all of the crafting supplies you should have at home. But if you don’t, here is what you’ll need.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this Valentine’s Day card:
We used cardstock for this craft because it’s thinker, which is nice when using paint. If you use too much paint and thin printer paper, it can seep through.
However, if printer paper is all you have on hand, it works. Just make sure to go light on the paint.
Create Your Valentine’s Day Fingerprint Card
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
To get started, you will need a piece of white and pink paper. However, if you don’t have pink, any color will work.
Grab both pink and red paint and squirt them on a plate. Or we used these cute little paint trays shown above.
Step 2: Fold Both Papers In Half
Start this project by first folding both pieces of paper in half. Then draw a half heart on the pink paper.
Cut out the hearts.
We made multiple cards. If you are only planning on making one card, you will only need to cut out one heart.
Step 3: Tape Hearts To Card
Tape your heart onto your card so that it doesn’t move around.
Step 4: Add Your Fingerprints
Begin by adding your fingerprints around the heart. Once that is done, continue to use different color paint to make fingerprints all over your card.
Then set your card out of the way to dry.
Step 5: Remove The Heart
Once the paint drys, remove the pink heart from your card, you should have a beautiful heart in the middle of your paper surrounded by tons of tiny little fingerprints.
Now open your card and write a sweet Valentine’s Day message.
