WHAT YOU NEED

Card Cookie cut­ters, in var­i­ous shapes Pen­cil and rub­ber Wa­ter-based paint Trim­mings Hot glue gun Al­pha­bet stamps and ink pad in de­sired colours Fine black marker

1 Cut the cards into your de­sired size, from gift tags to jumbo cards. Our cards (pic­tured op­po­site) mea­sured 14cm x 10cm. 2 Trace a soft out­line of the cookie cut­ter onto the card us­ing your pen­cil. This will pro­vide a sub­tle guide­line when fin­ger paint­ing. Fill in the out­line with your paint-covered fin­ger or thumb prints. When the paint dries, re­move any vis­i­ble lead pen­cil with your rub­ber. 3 Now ap­ply trim­mings with the glue gun and any let­ter­ing with your al­pha­bet stamps, stamp pad and black marker pen.
