Reverse Fingerprint Tree Cards Step By Step Directions
2. Trace the cookie cutter or template onto sheets of cardstock. Each tree will make two fingerprint Christmas cards.
3. Cut out traced Christmas trees.
4. Use painters tape to attach one Christmas tree to the front of a blank greeting card. Repeat until all cut trees are attached to a card.
5. Invite your child to paint the cards with the Christmas tree taped to the front with their fingerprints using tempera paint color (or colors) of choice. You can also use pencil eraser tips, cotton swabs, or Kwik Stix to paint them. Allow paint time to dry.
6. Carefully remove the taped cardstock Christmas tree from the front of the greeting card to reveal the reverse fingerprint Christmas tree card.
7. Use a glue stick to attach the Christmas tree that you removed to another blank greeting card. This will create two fingerprint Christmas tree cards, a positive fingerprint Christmas tree card, and a negative fingerprint Christmas tree card.
8. Allow cards to dry before writing a greeting in each.
9. Send off positive and negative fingerprint Christmas tree cards to family and friends.
