DIY Thumb Print Note Cards From Kids

You know that person who seems to have everything?  Or, maybe you know someone who just doesn't want any more "stuff." These thumb print note cards are the perfect DIY gift for that person!

My sister is very thoughtful when buying people gifts and she needed a gift for someone who is really hard to shop for.  So, she came up the idea to make them a set of thumb print note cards as a special present from her son.

My sister worked with her son to create these custom note cards and I think they look amazing!  This is a cute gift that you can help your child make for someone special in their life.  You only need paint, blank note cards and a marker.



First, she bought a set of plain white note cards.  She also chose an acrylic paint set in bright colors. Then, she and her son created these note cards including little fish, a caterpillar and funny little monsters. How cute are these? 

You can use any thumbprint design you want.  When you have completed the set, just tie them up with a ribbon, and wrap them up for that special person. I really like this gift idea because it doesn't cost a lot of money, it's practical, creative and it's from the heart.

Do you have any easy ideas for homemade gifts from kids?

Winter Dessert: Snowman Candy Apples 

Here in the Philadelphia suburbs, it's turning into a bit of a winter wonderland with snow on the ground. It reminded me of the Candy Apple Snowman that I made a while back and I wanted to share them with you.

These candy apples are really easy to make and I think they are adorable for a winter themed celebration or favors for a kid's birthday party.
