Valentine Handprint Flower Scroll
by Jane Lake and Twila Lenoir
Hand prints or flowers? This Valentine’s Day scroll is sure to make you look twice to find out!
Make this pretty handprint keepsake as a gift from the heart for your mother, grandmother or aunt on Valentine’s Day.
» Acrylic paint (red, 2 greens and gold)
» child’s hands
» canvas or construction paper
Brush red craft paint on your child’s hands, one at a time, and press on the paper. Repeat with the other hand. Paint on simple leaves and stems – you don’t have to be picture perfect!
With the makeup sponge and gold paint, sponge gold highlights around the edge of the picture.
Write a personal message in red or gold marker. Here, we put “I love you Mom” but you can write whatever you like, wherever there is space.
Let the picture dry, then roll up and tie the red ribbon around it like a scroll. Hand deliver your Valentine scroll. Later, you (or Mom) can place it in a glass frame to save forever.
