Close To Your Heart!

These make great gifts for grandparents!
Cute heart pins & magnets with your child's fingerprint!
Super simple to make!
Here is what you need...
oven bake clay, rolling pin (optional),
pin backs, magnets

Roll clay into a ball.
We covered our work surface with wax paper

Flatten with the palm of your hand

Continue to flatten clay

Cut our desired shape

On each side of the heart, press your child's finger
to make a print. I did my daughter on one side...
...and son on the other

Follow baking directions on clay package

Once clay is completely cool, hot glue pin or magnet
to the back. Attach the following poem:
"With this pin, my fingerprints will
always be close to your heart"

The possibilities are endless with oven bake clay!
Our favorite projects are pins, magnets, key chains and
now that my daughter is old enough she has started
making beads & jewelry!

The best is super cheap! One pack at
Michael's cost less than a $1.00
I was able to make 8 heart pins and still have a bit left.
Watch the ads...they are on sale often!!
