Simple Valentine Footprint Cards

K and I finally got our acts together with footprint crafts this Valentine’s Day. The irony is that by the time I am finally ready to do some foot-painting, K is already 5 months and too squirmy to enjoy it!

We did three crafts this time around, but googled a whole bunch more. There really are endless possibilities if you let the creative juices flow! We used cardstock from Michael’s that was leftover from our wedding invitations and this was able to hold it’s own against the acrylic paint. I have used sponges in the past, but I found it just as easy to paint a thin layer onto K’s foot with a paintbrush and then carefully apply that to the card. I had to make sure to push down each part of the foot to make sure there was a good print, and then I painted the additional features on top after the original print had dried!

      Such a cute idea for all the close family members! If you’re going bigger it can get difficult. I only made about 10 cards and by the end of it, I had one fussy baby on my hands!

      Thank you! I keep trying to do footprint cards for each holiday, but as the baby gets bigger the footprinting gets harder (for some odd reason)… LOL

    Since Valentine’s Day is quite a ways off, I am going to use these ideas for my daughter to make birthday cards for her aunt & brother this summer! These ideas can be incorporated into many different crafts.
