For My Valentines

I saw this idea over at Martha Stewart, you know, the queen of craft. She has a whole section on kid friendly crafts for Valentines day. This one seemed the easiest, so that's where we started.

Step 1- sharpen your crayons and save the shavings
Step 2- spread shavings in a wax-paper sandwich
Step 3- sandwich wax paper in parchment paper
Step 4- iron on medium
Step 5- allow to cool, about 2 to 3 minutes
Step 6- cut out heart shapes (I used the old fold in half technique)
Step 7- tape to string and tape in a window
It took about a half hour start to finish & we love it!
