Hand Print Valentine's Day Cards

Combining two of my favorite little one crafts, hand prints and finger painting, you can create both a personalized and memorable Valentine's day card from your little one regardless of age.

First, get an ink hand print of your little one. Just make sure you have the wipes on hand and ready to use!

Now for more mess {again, have the wipes ready}, have your little one finger paint. When their masterpiece has dried, use a heart shaped puncher or cut some hearts out the old fashion way :)

Do you feel the love?

Pick your favorite heart, glue it to the center of your little one's hand print.

Then, write out a heartfelt Valentine's day message.

With your extra finger paint hearts, you can seal your envelopes with a little extra love.

I even have a few in a glass bottle, along with a rolled up love note.

Such a great way to introduce your little one to crafting in such a personal way. These Valentine's are sure to be loved and appreciated by whomever is lucky enough to receive one.


  1. what a sweet idea! This would melt my husband's heart.

    1. Heidi, thank you SO much for the feedback. I made these 2 years ago, with my daughter, and I still treasure that little hand print. I hope you find the time to melt a heart or two with this idea.

  2. Such a cute idea, I love how you incorporated the finger painting as well! Happy Valentine's Day :-)
