Thumbprint Heart Magnet Craft Step by Step Directions
Make fingerprint or thumbprint hearts and turn them into glass gem magnets following the easy step-by-step directions below. You can also make thumbprint necklaces or thumbprint keychains. Click on the link for the tutorial.
Step – 1 Make a Thumbprint or Fingerprint Heart
A fingerprint or thumbprint can be used to make a heart for fingerprint art magnets. Use the easy directions below to make a fingerprint or a thumbprint heart.
- Press thumb into a fingerprint ink pad.
- Gently press thumb with ink onto bright white cardstock.
- Press thumb into a finger ink pad again to reapply ink.
- Tilt your thumb slightly and press down again to make a thumbprint heart.
- Allow fingerprint ink to dry before moving on to step 2.
Step 2 – Glue the Fingerprint Heart Art Onto the Glass Gem
- Place a drop of clear-drying glue on the glass gem’s back (flat side).
- Don’t use too much, or it can smear the thumbprint heart. A little bit goes a long way.
- Next, put the glass gem on the fingerprint heart–glue side down–to attach it to the thumbprint.
- Allow the glue to dry overnight.
Step 3 – Cut Away the Remaining Paper from Heart Craft
- Use a pair of small scissors to trim and cut away paper around the glass gem. It doesn’t need to be perfect. If paper lifts away from the glass gem, glue it down again in the next step.
Step 4 – Glue the Magnet to the Flat Glass Marble with Fingerprint Heart to Complete Heart Craft
- Use a foam brush to paint clear drying glue on top of the heart art paper on the back of the glass gem.
- Go over the edges of the paper to make sure they are glued down.
- Place glass gem glue side down onto a magnet and allow thumbprint heart magnets to dry overnight.
