Turn Thumb Print Leaves Into Family Heirloom

Good Ideas

We're always on the lookout for new creative ideas to add to our little one's lives. We love the look of this thumb print guest book, although it was used for a wedding (and a fabulous one at that) we think the look is perfect for your next baby shower or as wall art in your nursery. A few more ideas are after the jump!

We really love the idea of little individual leaves. We also think it could be a neat thing to keep from year to year for your child, letting invited attendees to birthday parties stamp their fingers to leave their mark on the day. Keep the same "tree" from year to year, just add to it as you go, alter colors if you wish, just make sure to date one or two so you know where it stops.

It's a great way to document all those who come see a newborn upon it's first few weeks of arrival. As family and friends pour into your home, have them stamp their finger to show their support for your little one. By the time their old enough to understand they'll have a lush, full tree, or even a forest! What a cool family heirloom.

We'll also take this time to note, that birds can be created from a single thumb print (just draw on the beak, eye and feet) and would also be cute on a telephone wire as wall art!
