  • 1/4 cup Shaving Foam
  • 1/4 cup White Glue
  • Card
  • Glitter


    1. Mix the Shaving Foam and White Glue together.
    2. Fold the card in the middle to create a greetings card
    3. Paint a heart on the front of the card using the puffy paint
    4. Sprinkle glitter over the heart whilst it is still wet
    5. Allow to dry


    1. The puffy paint will "puff up" as it dries to create a lovely 3D effect
    2. You can add food coloring or paint to the puffy paint to make it colored
    3. For younger children, draw the heart shape on the card and have them "fill it in" with paint
    4. The texture of this paint is incredible - expect curious hands to enjoy exploring it - and making a mess with it!
