Gavin's Valentine's Day cards

Gavin wanted to make his friends heart shaped crayons. So that is what we did for his friends. 

 Peeling the wrappers off of crayons isn't as easy as I remember it being when I was a kid.
I preheated the oven to 250. We used ice cube molds from the dollar spot at Target then lined a cookie sheet with foil in case they melted like they did to my friend. I figured for $2 it would be easier than cleaning a muffin tin. It took about 7 - 10 minutes for the crayons to melt.

 I made some cards that said "You color my heart happy!"

 I  had to make some for my fellow Tennessee fans that said "Happy VOLentine's Day!"

Unfortunately I sprayed the molds so my glue dots were not sticking very well.  I wrapped them in treat bags and taped the backs. It would have been cute to put To: and From: heart shaped stickers on the back but maybe next time. 


  1. Love these!! Great job! Hope y'all are feeling better soon.

  2. these are simply adorable... what a great idea!

  3. These turned out awesome! I love the Tennessee ones (and I don't even like Tennessee!). Please teach me how to design stuff.... please.

  4. This is such a cute idea! I love your packaging, it looks so professional :) And it's a fun craft to do with the kids :)
