Supplies Needed to Make a Handprint Watermelon

– Colored cardstock – we used black, green, a lighter green and red.

Glue – Regular glue or a glue stick. However, since this is mostly all paper – I like to use a glue stick for this project since it’s less messy.

How to Make a Watermelon Handprint Card

1. Start by folding over a piece of red cardstock.

Trace the handprint so that the pinky is along the folded part. Cut it out.

It should now open up like a card:

2. Make the green part of the watermelon.

Use a pencil to trace the bottom of the handprint on green cardstock to make the shape of the bottom of the handprint. Then cut this piece out with a slight curve in it.

3. Use the green shape you cut out to make a lighter green shape. Then trim this piece down so it will only be the top part and can be glued on top of the darker green piece.

Glue both green papers onto the handprint.

4. Cut out 7 small black seeds. Or you can draw these on with the black marker. Glue the watermelon seeds anywhere on the red part or along the green paper edge.

You can also cut out eyes from white paper and add a black dot inside.

Watermelon Handprint Card

We love how easy and simple this card is to make! And bonus is that it’s less messy with just paper! If you want to try making it with paint, paint the top of the hand red and the bottom green and then stamp onto paper. Then follow the same steps.
