Add Fingerprints

Select your first color of paint (start with the darkest color) and squeeze onto a flat surface. Dip fingertip into the first color of paint and begin making fingerprints on the frame in a random fashion, allowing space between for additional colors. Allow to dry for a few minutes before adding the next color. Repeat with all four colors, finishing with the lightest shade.

Tip: To add variety, you can use a different finger for each color of paint.

Add Photo and Present to Mom

Allow to dry completely, then replace the glass and frame back and add a cherished photo. Finish each frame with a printable Mother's Day gift tag. This gift is sure to become a cherished keepsake.
