  1. Oh Wow!
    How cute is this!
    Not to self .. must try!
    I will totally be doing this to send on over to my nephews in Australia .. ahh my wheels are spinning!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Hello, I love this- but a stupid question, what are the steps to getting the fingerprints on afterwards? Do you print the finished version of the child holding the balloon tope? Then use watercolors to do fingerprints from there? Thanks,

  3. Just wondering what type of paper would i use to get a high quailty photo image & what the finger print ink would work on?

  4. I want to do this, but I don’t have “photoshop” I was able to print the pdf, but not sure what to do from there. I was hoping to do this with my students for a mother’s day present. ???

    Is there way to do it with an apple computer?

  5. Thanks for a really great idea! Not too complicated or time consuming, the kids (5 and 8) can participate (with their limited patience) and the result is a really nice gift (especially if using thicker paper and a good printer – we didn’t…)

    I converted the kids to black and white (not grey-scale), so the ballons would stand out as even more colourful. That makes a nice effect, I think.
