Required Materials

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make the most out of these cute printable gift tags for Mother’s Day:

Supplies to make fingerprint Mother's Day gift tags.
  • My free Mother’s Day gift tag template, which you can download using the form below (there’s another form at the bottom of the article if you’d rather keep reading)
  • White or beige cardstock
  • Washable kids’ paint or acrylic paint in yellow, red, green, pink and blue (if you’re only making one gift tag, you can skip the colors you don’t need)
  • Fine point or ultra fine point markers (permanent or regular)
  • Scissors
  • ¼-inch hole punch (this is the most common size available)

How to Use Your Printable Gift Tag Template (Step by Step)

1. Print Template

Start by downloading and printing the template on US Letter-sized cardstock. (My cardstock had a slight speckled look but yours doesn’t have to.)

2. Dip Finger in Paint

Pour a dot of paint onto a paint palette or ceramic plate and dip your child’s finger in it.

Then, press your child’s finger onto the cardstock to create a colorful fingerprint. Here is what you’ll need to do for each of the gift tags:

  • “Thank you for BEE-ing my mom”: Use your child’s thumb to create one yellow horizontal thumbprint in the center of the gift tag
  • “You’re the BERRY best mom”: Use your child’s thumb to create one red vertical thumbprint in the center of the gift tag
  • “I’m so LUCKY that you’re my mom”: Use your child’s index finger to create four green fingerprints arranged in the shape of a four-leaf clover
  • “Mom, OLIVE you very much” – Use your child’s thumb to create two green vertical thumbprints in the center of the gift tag, then use their index finger to create a smaller red fingerprint at the top of each green thumbprint
  • “You make my HEART flutter”: Use your child’s thumb to create two pink thumbprints side-by-side in the upper half of the gift tag, then use their index finger to create two pink side-by-side fingerprints in the bottom half and two blue fingerprints in the center of the pink thumbprints
  • “I love you CHERRY much”: Use your child’s index finger to create two red fingerprints in the center of the gift tag

3. Let Paint Dry

Let the gift tags rest undisturbed until the paint is fully dry.

4. Add Details

Once the paint is dry, use a fine tip or ultra fine tip marker to add embellishments to the fingerprints that will make them look more like what they’re supposed to be representing.

I used a black marker to give a face, some stripes and a stinger to the bumblebee. Then, I used a blue marker to draw two small wings.

For the strawberry, I used a green marker to add some leaves at the top. Then, I used a black marker to create small seeds all over the red thumbprint.

As for the four-leaf clover, I used a green marker to add a stem at the bottom.

I left the olives plain since the red fingerprints already gave them all the embellishment they needed.

The butterfly got a body and some antennae drawn using a dark pink marker.

And finally, I used a green marker to create cherry stems and leaves on top of the two red fingerprints.

5. Cut Gift Tags

When you’re done adding embellishments, use scissors to cut along the lines around each gift tag (or whichever one you’ve chosen to use).

6. Add Hole

Use a ¼-inch hole punch (this is the most common size so no need to look for anything fancy) to make a hole at the top of each gift tag.

A circle has been provided as a guide, but the circle is smaller than ¼ inch in diameter, so it shouldn’t be visible at all once it’s been removed with the hole punch.

7. Attach to Gift

When you’re done making holes, the custom labels are ready to use!

Simply use string to attach a tag to any gift you’re planning on giving to Mom, Auntie or Grandma for Mother’s Day. (We love this DIY mason jar candle holder, and it matches perfectly with the gift tags because it includes little thumbprints as well!)
