Handprint Cupcake Keepsake

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

  • 8.5x11" piece of white cardstock

  • 1 construction paper strip

  • finger paint

  • Elmer's glue

  • sequins

  • pom-poms

  • crayons

  • glitter glue

  • glitter

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Write you name, age and birthday on the piece of cardstock.

  • Cover your entire palm and four fingers with paint (not your thumb). Press your hand to the center of your paper and hold it there for a few seconds. Release your hand slowly. Let your handprint dry.

  • Fold the construction paper strip like an accordion. Unfold it, then glue it to your paper so it covers only part of your palm, giving the look of a cupcake liner and cupcake.

  • Once your handprint is dry, decorate your “cupcake”! Give it “frosting” (glitter) and “sprinkles” (pom poms or sequins). “Light the candles” by drawing flames or gluing pom poms to the tops of the fingertips.
