Valentine Craft

We made a little Valentine Craft.
The idea came from my good "friend" Martha Stewart.
For complete directions go here.
Picture above from Martha Stewart.

This was a fun craft. All you need: old crayons, wax paper and an iron.

We found that a hand held pencil sharpener worked best.
(We tried a vegetable peeler too...but the pencil sharpener worked a little better.)
I did not photograph all the steps but basically you shred the crayon,
fold the wax paper over,
iron and then cut out the shapes you want.
Remember complete directions are on the Martha Stewart website link above.

We decided to display it a little different.
Sort of like a mobile over Ellie's bed.
We punched holes in the hearts
and hung them with embroidery floss from and embroidery hoop.
We also added some bejeweled pipe cleaners for added bling!!
