Happy Valentine's Day!
The kids and I have been working on a colorful Valentine's treat for Payton's kindergarten class. I found this fun Valentine craft on one of my favorites Blogs How does she?
We changed up this sweet little 'melted crayon heart' idea just a bit. Let me show you how...
First we divided the colors up to similar color familes
Strip the paper off (recommend: the edge of a pair of scissors or x-acto knife)
Break the crayons up into pieces
Place the crayons in a cute heart silicone mold with a little glitter
Pop in the oven on 300 degrees for 15 minutes and enjoy watching them melt
Ta-Da! You have beautifully melted crayon hearts
Wait 30-45 minutes for them to cool and you have beautiful marbled crayon hearts for the kiddos to enjoy!
Next we put them in goodie bags with cute note pads I found at the dollar store, tied with a ribbon and a Valentine note attached.
I not only worked on sweet little Valentines with Payton for her class but I made MY sweet Valentine a gift...
52 THINGS I love about you!
All you need is the following:

On Shutterfly I made this cute deck of cards with our picture for HALF the price with a coupon...SCORE!
In Micosoft Word I used shipping label template to create my ideas to print
Print, cut and use double-sided tape to attach to the card
Voila'! Now you have this cute, crafty way to express your LOVE!
The kiddos made this beautiful handmade card for me
While I was fast asleep last night my Valentine was being quite the creative hubby leaving little surprises everywhere...
But he wasn't done...I found this little note in the back of my car
Hmm...so I go check it out
I am so blessed to have a house full of love, not only just today but everyday!
