How to Make Grinch Handprint Cards

You can create each card as a set or make your favorite one! Follow our easy step-by-step directions for each card.

First, start by tracing the handprint for each card on white cardstock.

Trace Handprint on White Cardstock

Cindy Lou: Trace the handprint so the pinky is along the folded part.

Max: Trace the handprint so that the thumb is on the folded part. Note: we did the pinky which is ok too but you will need to flip the card around so it opens the traditional way.

Grinch: Trace the handprint so that the thumb is on the folded part.


Cut out each card:

Cindy Lou: Paint the face the color of your choice and paint the fingers yellow.

Max: Paint the middle a light brown and the thumb and pinky a dark brown.

Grinch: Paint the bottom part of the handprint a lime green and the fingers red.
