DIY ThumbPrint Butterflies

These Thumbprint butterflies are so easy to make and they are absolutely adorable. I always think handprint, footprint, thumbprint and fingerprint crafts make the best keepsakes.

These sweet DIY butterflies would be an easy Valentine’s Day craft idea.

This idea could be used for a Spring Theme, Butterfly theme or Valentine’s Day.

First dip thumb in red paint and place on paper 2 times to make a heart type shape.

Then add a body with marker.

Sprinkle with sugar.

Look at the beautiful butterfly! Such sparkle!
