Hi everyone! It has been way too long again. I last posted when the Costa Rican Exchange was in full swing and because of that and many other family and school activities, I haven't had a lot of time to craft. Valentine's Day is coming up and this year I wanted to do something cooler than store bought cartoon cards. I turned to Pinterest and saw so.....many.....COOL......ideas. We decided on some airplane cards (which I have yet to make) and these hearts made out of old broken crayons.
Step 1: Buy or find a heart shaped muffin tin (mine was $3.50 for a silicone muffin pan with 6 hearts)
Step 2: Remove paper from crayons (soak them in warm water or remove with a knife/screwdriver)
Step 3: Fill heart cups with crayons
Step 4: Cook at 275 degrees for 25 minutes
Step 5: Cool and remove to see what you have (I cooled mine outside for 10 minutes in the cold Wisconsin air)
I had my 2 year old daughter use watercolor paint on some small white "popcorn" bags and I stamped the crayons and sentiment on top of her painted designs. Inside the bag is a heart crayon and I closed the bag with a strip of washi.
These were a lot of fun for us to make together. Check out Friends with Flair at the Unity blog. Have a great weekend!
