Make Father's Day Handprint Cards!
Today, I'm so happy to share the match to the Female version, of the handprint person! Use your the same hand, but this time hold those fingers close together when making the tracing. Add a necktie or a collar
Heavy card of white card stock with matching envelope
Paint (we used watercolor but, any paint will work. If fact, you could use markers or crayon, too)
How to make:
- To make this Handprint Card, we traced our youngest son's hand with his fingers held tightly together onto craft paper.
- We cut out handprint.
- Decorated the handprint and attached to card:
To make our version:
- Painted the finger tops of his handprint brown
- Cut out white paper circles for eyes with green paint
- Added paper fringes for the lashes.
- Drew the nose and mouth with markers.
- We glued this hand head onto the card
- Cut two slits at the base of the neck and slid the ribbon through the slits
(Mommy helped by tying a half-Windsor)
- Grayson finished his card with a message and a greeting. We can't wait to surprise Dad!
For a more casual version:
- Cut fabric pieces for collar. We used an old pinstripe shirt and drew the neck line and buttons.
- We used googly eyes and painted on all other facial features.
I'd love to see what you do with this tutorial. Have fun personalizing these yourself. For inspiration, look at the female version for details, too.
