Materials Needed To Make Fingerprint Valentine’s Day Cards

Here is what you will need to make the cards:

  • Craft Paint – washable paint will work or I like to use non-toxic acrylic paint for a better coverage (just make sure to wash hands right away when you’re done)
  • White Cardstock 
  • Alphabet Stickers 
  • Black Marker or Sharpie
