Heart Shaped Crayon Valentine's





I made 60 of these valentine's for my 7 year old twins classmates. We are not allowed to send in food treats so I figured this would be a useful fun gift! (I'm not quite sure but I think an alarm will go off if a cupcake enters the school building!!!!!!!!!)
I made the crayons with a heart shaped silicone pan. It took quite a while because the pan only made 6 at a time and I only had 1 pan!!!!
The hearts are all from the sweethearts cricut cartridge.

Materials:
Wilton heart shape silicone pan
At least 4 crayons per heart broken up
Patterned paper - K& Co.
Journaling and sentiment stamps from My Creative Time - My Journaling and You Had Me at Chocolate Sets
Twine
Eyelets
Ribbon
buttons
pop dots

I put the filled heart pan in the oven for about 10 - 15 minutes @ 250 degrees. They needed to cool for at least 30 minutes. I attached them to the front of the Valentine with 2 pop dots.
I will be entering this in the Wacky Wednesday Valentine Challenge

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate every single comment and follower!!! Have a great day! Love, Cathryn <3

What a great idea! They don't let us bring sweets at my sons school either! It's tough being a kid these days! These turned out just beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

Isa and Zach are going to love these at school. They'll be proud to hand them out and say "My mommy made this!"

I made those same crayons two years ago for my niece's party at school. They all loved them. There was one difference between yours and mine. I put mine on a round white card stock and colored it like the plant earth and wrote the verse that goes,"you color my world."
Great job! I am glad to see someone else does this. The kids all seem to really love them.
