{DIY} Handprint Valentine's Card

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
This weekend we finished up our Valentine’s Day cards for school and then wanted to make something extra special for Grandma and Grandpa! Armed with left over craft supplies and our monster Valentine’s Day theme we made handprint cards!  It was super easy fun and absolutely perfect for the grandparents.

Handprint Card Directions:

  1. Trace your child's left and right hands onto cardstock and then cut them out using scissors. Leave a bit of wrist to create a flap.

  2. Cut cards from cardstock into your desired size. I had 4 x5.5 inch envelopes so we cut accordingly.

  3. Print wallet size photos of your little one onto photo paper.
  4. Use the hole-punch to cut out pictures from the photo paper; making sure you frame the face.

  5. Position components on cardstock prior to gluing (better safe than sorry); align the hand and score the edge along the wrist to create a flap.
  6. Glue each component to the card stock (only glue the flap of the hand so it can flip up and down) and write your message under the palm.
  7. Add accents i.e. eyes, pipe cleaners, glitter, or just let your kids color it.
  8. Allow time to dry then put in envelopes and send!

This took us all of 15 minutes to make and proved to be a fun Valentine’s Day craft! They will make cute keepsakes for Grandma and Grandpa and you can customize the handprint into whatever your theme calls for (flower, butterflies, hearts, etc).
