Lucie and I made a few more decorations for Valentine’s Day. She thought it was a fabulous project and loved watching me melt the crayon shavings with the iron. She also thought it was cool how stiff the paper got after we ironed it. It only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish, so it’s a nice quick project with immediate results. I really don’t think I need to explain….but…… 🙂
A few old crayons
a grater (I also cut a few up into larger chunks with scissors)
Grate or cut up some crayons. Scatter the shavings on the wax paper, cover with another piece of wax paper. Place on a towel (in case some leaks out). Iron on low (right on the paper) and watch it melt. Cut out into desired shapes.
I placed a heart doily in the middle before we ironed….to see what would happen….and because we had them. I think it adds a nice Valentines-y touch. 🙂
