D.i.y. Scratch Off Cards

I just found one of the most interesting tutorials ever. Do you remember how you enjoyed revealing the fields on scratch cards as a kid? It hasn’t been important if you actually got the winning ticket.

All the fun has been in that great feeling while scratching the protective cover, usually using a coin.  

How many of you still love doing this even as an adult? Count me in. That’s why I’m giving you these instructions so you can make one on your own. You can use it for Valentine’s day, as a gift certificate or at a kid’s party.


Here are a few photos to get a taste of it. Just use contact paper and tape the center where the message will be hidden. Paint over the message , use 1 part liquid dish washing detergent to 2 parts acrylic paint.


Let it dry.
