These Adorable Snowmen are made from Kid Thumbprints & make Perfect Holiday Thank You Cards

Snowman Thumb Print Thank You NotesLooking for a little crafty fun?  Check out these easy & relatively inexpensive thumbprints that became snowmen that turned into the perfect holiday thank you notes to share with family & friends.

Not only were they easy, but they filled up an afternoon with crafting that kept kids busy and active.


Blank Card Notes (see below)

Puffy paints (or 3D Paints – see below)

2 – 3 different colored stamp pads

Step 1: Create snowmen by using thumbs to create the head, body & bottom of each snowman.  We made three snowmen on each card to represent the three kids in our family.  Let them dry.

Step 2:  Add snow to the bottom the card by using either white or glittering crystal 3D Paint (a.k.a puffy paints)

Step 3: Add arms using the brown 3D Paints.

Step 4:  Add black eyes & mouths using 3D Paints.

Step 5:  Add orange noses using 3D Paints.

Step 6:  Add snowflakes and dots to the top to finish it off using 3D paints.

Blank Cards:  We found the blank cards used in the photo in a $1 bin in the crafting section at Wal-mart near the scrapbooking supplies.  They were 8 cards for $1.  However, you can also purchase blank cards at local crafting stores with coupons for under $5.

3D Paints:  These can be found in both crafting stores & at Wal-marts for less than a $1 per bottle.  We use both Scribbles 3D paint & polymark dimensional fabric paints.
