Thumb Print Christmas Tree Cards

Here are the cards we made to go with our teacher gifts and to give to other people who are involved with our kids.
Then on the inside, I found this cute quote and we made the thumbprint heart to go with it.

I saw some Christmas cards somewhere...on some blog that just had a single Christmas tree made from a fingerprint.  I didn't save the link, and now I can't find it...so if that was you, let me know so I can link back.  Anyway, I took that idea and we made thumbprint cards with the kids.  Instead of one tree, we have three and each kid donated a finger.  We used a straw to stand the stars and ornaments on, and a colored pencil for the trunks. 

And we had a rebelious finger with one of the stamp jobs and ended up a green smear instead of a thumbprint...and turned it into a Christmas tree of it's own.  I acutally think I like this one the best...but we'd already done most of them by this time.

And this is the cute note Firecracker wrote her teacher, and then we added some notes ourselves.

You could easily type these cards up yourself...but to save you the trouble, you can download the printable here.  We made two versions, a big one that uses a full sheet of cardstock and a smaller one that gives you two from a single piece of cardstock.  (The big ones were good for Firecracker to write in, but otherwise, I think the small ones match the size of the thumbprints better.)
