"This adorable Father's Day mug uses a child's fingerprint to create a cute daddy and me message. The perfect keepsake gift for dad! Use your child’s fingerprints and paint to make a useful keepsake Father’s Day mug. This simple but adorable fingerprint Daddy & Me mug says it all! Great for Father’s Day or a birthday and perfect for taking to the office. When I originally created this Father’s Day mug project several years ago I used enamel paint and a toothpick as you will see in the step photos below. However, I am including a suggestion for paint pens in the steps and supply list. They are much easier to use!"
