I first created a thumbprint guestbook for my wedding in 2012. Ours was a tree. I painted the tree and text in watercolor, then our guests stamped the paper with their thumbs, creating little "leaves" with their thumbprints. I chose to have our guests sign the leaves with metallic ink.
Since our wedding, I've made quite a few of these little treasures! They're such a unique way to remember an event. I usually include the ink pads and pens, so I know the colors will all coordinate.
There are many designs you could do, besides a tree… I have ideas for children, bachelorette parties, weddings, beach trips, and more. Let me know if you'd like me to make one for you!
Here are some guestbooks I've created:
