Thumbprint Heart Glasses Valentine

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and it is one of the best holidays for adorable handmade crafts!  I love a good ol’ classic handmade valentine, and these thumbprint heart glasses are easy enough for kids to craft in an afternoon!  Just grab some alphabet stamps, ink pads and cardstock, and you can make the cutest punny valentines for classmates.  Heart glasses are pretty easy to come by this time of year, so these could be cute tags to attach to a little V-day gift.  I found some packs of four at the dollar store, and am starting to see them everywhere!


• Cardstock

• Scissors or paper cutter

• Alphabet stamps

• Ink pads in multiple colors

• Markers


• Hole punch

• Ribbon or string

• Heart glasses

• Cellophane bags


Step 1

Cut cardstock into 4" x 3" rectangles.  Just left, but close to the center of the card, use your thumb and some ink to stamp two thumbprints angled away from each other, with the bottom of one overlapping the bottom of the other to look like a heart.  Stamp a second heart a little over ¼” from the first.  

Step 2

In multiple alternating colors, use alphabet stamps to write “I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU” with “I ONLY HAVE” at the top of the card, and “EYES FOR YOU” at the bottom. 

Step 3

Use a marker to draw an outline around the heart prints.  Attach them with a curved line at the middle, and create the sides of the glasses with lines angled out from the sides, and ending with a curve. 


You may punch a hole in the side of the card, put some heart glasses in cellophane bags, and attach the card to the bag using fun ribbon or string.  

Now you have the cutest valentines to share with classmates, friends, family and neighbors!  Happy crafting, and Happy Valentine’s Day!!
