12 Glass Hearts
I found the glass heart shapes to be a nice touch to decorating my home. They look very nice scattered throughout. I'm thinking I need to order more. They are pretty & subtle enough to add charm the year round.

NOT BAD, BUT A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
I ordered 96 of these, and only 2 were not able to be used (they were chipped severely). My biggest issue with these generally pleasing hearts was the foil 'made in china' sticker on the bottom of all of them. Being that the hearts are see-through, you have a nice rectangle foil shape in the middle of your view. It looked a bit tacky. And that sticker does not come off easily! And when it does, it leaves a sticky patch that you cannot rub off. So you can only take it off on the clear ones, because if you do on the red ones,you'll rip off some of the red paint, then you have to rub off the red to get the glue off. They are not very clean either, but the clear ones came out perfect after cleaning as one might suspect, but many of the red ones were very dusty and/or dull. You can't put them in any contact with water, as previously stated by another buyer. You also can't rub them very hard, or the red rubs off. But some of them were just dull, and did not have a very glossy finish. Also, they do vary in size, some thin, others very puffy, tall, and heavy. On about half of them, the markings from the bubble wrap made "stains" on them. The clear ones you could rub the marks off, but the red ones had to stay that way. I only write this since it would have been nice to have a detailed description when I was looking at the comments. I used these for marketing, not a craft, so if you need them for clients, you now have the particulars. Overall, they worked (I stuck labels on them, both top and bottom, with my company name and number, and in doing so was able to cover the 'made in china' sticker), and were pretty when put in the organza multi-colored bags I purchased for them to go in. Hope this helps future buyers.

Nice Product but Red Rubs Off!
I purchased several dozen of these as small thank you tokens for an end of year PTA Volunteer Thank you Party. They are larger and more substantial than I had expected, and seemed to be perfect. However, the items were a little dusty so I decided to wash them. The water took the Red off the Red hearts! Turns out they are not red glass, they are white glass dipped in red paint. The paint came off immediately in the water - in a patchy pattern and they looked terrible. Almost all the reds had to be thrown out. So, if you purchase these, use a dry cloth to clean the red ones or you will be sorely disappointed! Otherwise, they were a good item at a good price for our purposes.
