Print out the “Thank You” card, attach it to a special gift of your choice or use my idea.Here’s what you need to make the Polymer Clay Heart:

Red Sparkly Polymer Clay (makes four hearts)
Small Heart Cookie Cutter
Wax Paper
Cookie Sheet
Small Crystals (I bought mine from Michael’s)
Hot Glue Gun or Craft Glue
Rolling Pin
Adhesive Bar Pins
Jute (for print)
How to make the Polymer Clay Hearts: 

Knead the clay into a smooth circle. Using a rolling pin, roll the clay out flat on wax paper.



Using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut out a heart. Place the heart on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes at 275 degrees. Do not preheat the oven. Remove from oven and let cool. Next, glue a crystal onto the heart. Flip the heart over and stick the pin bar on.


Print out your printable. Using Jute make a  bow,  attach to the card using glue. Use a hole puncher to make two holes on the bottom part of the card to slide the pin on. That’s it!

    How thoughtful. Teaches children gratitude. Valentine's day is my favorite day for this very reason.

    • KimSeghers

      Thank you! I think it's great to let the teaches know they're appreciated. I usually give all the after care school workers, the teachers and the secretary a small gift for Valentine's Day to let them know we appreciate them. My son's school does Teacher Appreciation Week so the teaches will get another cute gift! Enjoy the rest of your week, Kim
