So, I'm sure everyone has seen these cuties on Pinterest:
Unfortunately, there was no source attached to the pin. If this idea is yours, please let me know! It's adorable!
Its pretty self explanatory, but I did take a few pics to show how I did Eva's...
First, preheat your oven to 230 degrees.
While your oven is preheating, group your crayons by color.
I did 7 groups, instead of mixing them all together:
4) Greens/Dark Greens
Remove the paper,
and cut them up...
Fill your heart silicon pan about 1/4 to 1/2 full, according to how thick you want the hearts to be. I used larger hearts.
Place in the oven for 15 minutes or until the crayons are completely melted. To cool them faster, I put mine in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. If it hadn't been snowing, I probably would have put them outside. LOL
The final result looks like this:
In between waiting for them to completely cool and putting in a new batch, I played around with iWork Pages until I came up with a design and saying I liked, then I printed out the cards on cardstock.
After cutting the cards to size, I took leftover pieces of ribbon and buttons and glue gunned them to the cards. Then I taped the heart crayons to the cards.
This is the final result:
Twenty-four later and I was finally done. It literally was an all day projects, just because the pan I used only had 6 hearts.
Eva loves them and I'm sure her friends will have a blast coloring with them. Its an ingenious idea for a unique Valentine's card. Don't you just love Pinterest?!
And thanks to my sis-in-law, for loaning me her silicone pan! Total cost to me, was only the cost of the crayons, since I already had everything else here. Aren't those the best projects?! :)
