Nostalgic as I may sound, one of my favorite hobbies, especially during the scorching summer holidays was sitting with lots of paint bottles and white papers to make some engrossing handprint crafts. And now, my daughter does the same! So I thought why not make handprint flowers as a keepsake for her to cherish when she grows up.
How to Make Handprint Flower
What you’ll need
- Thick white papers (Preferably construction papers or cardstocks)
I squeezed the paints on an old plastic plate-turned-into-palette.
My little princess dipped her little hands in the paint and pressed them on the papers. Then I made her draw a stem and some leaves for the handprint blossoms.
For a more vibrant effect, I suggested her some unique colors for the flowers. After all, who likes a monotonous art when you have tons of paint bottles and tubes at home?

I voted this handprint flower craft as the best Mother’s Day gift. Here, the handprint was done as usual and on each fingertip, my daughter stamped the flowers using her tiny thumb soaked in paints.
