You don’t need any fancy supplies to make these cards just a little time. The first time I made these were for a wedding shower and I had cute little fortunes written under the scratch offs. Each guest would give the bride her gift and the bride to be would give the guest back a cute little scratch off fortune kinda like a fortune cookie, only it was a vintage carnival shower LOL You can see the post HERE
I did find and easier way to make these if you wanted to just cover a small space dare I say a heart, for Valentines day! This is what you will need for this
liquid dish soap
- print out the printables
- write what ever you want in the hearts I would use a penciel, the ink with the pen i used smeard, as you can see below when I covered it with the crayon.
- color them over with a white crayon and use a lot of crayon! I’m sure any color will work but white seemed the best. I didn’t want any other color showing through.
- mix your dollop of paint with a drop or two of dish washing soap and paint over the heart. sound weird but it makes the paint not as sticky so that it will peel off. I liked gold of course but you could use white or any other color. Just make sure its nice and thick maybe even two coats.
- give your guy a quarter and let him scratch away.
you can be sassy or as sweet as you would like. I just saying if these are for your hubby they like them sassy! And the kids just love seeing whats under the heart! Ok mine were scratching them all off until they found the one for a treat at the gas station. ha ha I think this would be a cute thing to do for lunch boxes or at a party with little wishes. The sky’s the limit.
Happy Happy Valentines Day!!!
