Fingerprint Heart Art

What you'll need:

  • Cardstock or heavy paper - 2 pieces
  • Stamp pads, watercolors, or craft paint
  • Tape 
  • Scissors
  • Damp towel for messy fingers


1. Cut a heart out of one piece of paper.

2. Make three loops of tape and place on the back side of the heart. Then tape the heart to the center of the second piece of paper:

3. Select colors from your stamp pads, watercolors, or craft paints.

4. Starting with the lightest color first, make fingerprints all around the heart. For the best effect, be sure to overlap from the taped heart to the paper underneath.

5. Press painted fingerprints close together and overlapping near the heart, and more spread out as you get toward the edge of the bottom paper.

6. Repeat, using a different color each time. Use less of each subsequent color. 

7. Carefully peel the heart cut-out off of the bottom paper.

The finished product is a colorful card, perfect for Valentine's Day! Have fun playing with different color combinations, and try other cut-out shapes throughout the year!

Happy Valentines Day!
