I came up with this cute card design to accompany my kid’s teachers’ Easter gifts.
The kids were able to get involved and we had a lot of fun completing them. Give them a go yourself.
What we used:
Blanks cards – we purchased ours or you could make these from card stock
A variety of acrylic paints
How we did it:
Taking the first colour, I painted each child’s thumb and got them stamping. I directed the kids to stamp away from the very bottom of the card – you will see why later.
Before we used the other chosen colours, we washed and dried our hands. This helped to keep the colours crisp.
Once the thumbprints had dried, we used textas to decorate the eggs and to add a greeting to the card.
Taking a strip of green paper, I cut out a zig-zaggy section of grass.
Using some glue, we secured the grass to the bottom of the card. As we had positioned the thumbprint eggs further up the card, they appeared to be hiding in the grass.
And that is it. Relatively quick and easy to make and they look gorgeous.
We have attached these cards to a bundle of mini eggs for each of the kids’ teachers.
As we had such a fun time doing this, I have dreamt up other uses for fingerprint Easter eggs. Tune in tomorrow to see them elsewhere.
