Transparent Ghost Halloween Handprint Cards
As long as there are small hands in our house, let there be “handprint art.”
Kids always seem to have fun creating art with their handprints. The results are one-of-a-kind pieces that are time-capsules, too. This past weekend, I had an idea for updating the classic handprint card by using a paper cut technique and transparent paper. I thought the results were spooky cute!
Learn the trick behind these Halloween Handprint Cards treats below!
Card Stock (I used 220 g black + orange card stock), pencil, matching envelopes, Xacto knife, Black permanent pens, double sided tape or glue, Transparent Paper (I used tracing paper here but, you can find milky, semi-transparent card stock at craft and paper supply stores) White Opaque pens Optional: stickers and/or paper with glue.
Above | Bottom: Cut out hand print. Remove the inner handprint area.
Note: Above, we traced the hand on the inside front cover of the card so that we could cut out the area within the lines of the tracing. These pencil marks may be erased or covered up, in the next step, with the transparent paper.
Personalise faces with markers, add stickers or paper cut outs for further embellishment. Add a message around the edge of the ghost, as an invitation or thanks you. We’ll be using these for both.
