School Valentine Card Design #2
My oldest daughter loved the melted crayons molded into shapes she saw online. So to do this I used two inexpensive ice cube molds and we melted colors that can be mixed with out turning brown (primary colors and colors next to each other on the color wheel) and baked them. I found out fast, ice cube molds are not very heat resistant. So a low temperature for a longer time worked well. I baked the crayons in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes. Before baking we added glitter to each heart to give it some sparkle. Once cool they popped right out. We then cut heart card shapes from the Cricut cartridge Wild Card in a variety of colors. My daughter then matched the crayons to the card color. On the inside she chose the bright paper and made labels that said "You color my world!!!" On the back she wrote the names. I am proud to say my daughter did most of this project, with the exception of tying the 24 bows. I should have thought about tying all those bows!
