The possibilities are endless when it comes to this scratch off ticket method! Birthday, anniversary, baby shower reveal, or in this case: Valentine’s Day!
All you are going to need is a few basic supplies:
- Packing tape
- Something to write with (pens, markers)
- Something to write on (I used index cards, but you can use a pre-made card)
- Liquid dish soap
- Paint brush
Draw and write on your index card. Draw a shape too! This will be the thing you cover in paint to scratch off later. For example, I drew 3 hearts and wrote a adjective in each.
Now cover your index card (or whatever you are using) with tape. This will provide a slick surface that the paint will rub off of later.
Mix your paint solution. This is one part soap, two parts paint. I usually eyeball it. You do not need very much.
Mix and paint in your shapes. You may need a couple of coats.
Let it dry, and give it to your valentine!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
