STEP 2. Dip your fingertip into white paint or glue.

STEP 3. Carefully press your fingertip down on the front of the card close to the line you just drew.

STEP 4. Before the paint or glue dries, sprinkle fine glitter over your fingerprint.

STEP 5. Repeat the process of making fingerprints with paint or glue and coating them with glitter.

STEP 6. Write a festive message on the front of the card. Add a personal message inside, then send to your family and friends!
