Valentines - Pinterest Inspired

If you haven't seen some form of these Valentines on Pinterest, well then, you're just not paying close enough attention.  I think everyone has pinned them.  Just in case you haven't, I put my spin on them here.  

First, the Crayon Hearts...these are SO cool and so easy to do.  My kids helped me peel and break the crayons.  
The link says 230 degrees for 15 minutes, mine took more like 25 minutes.  


 I bought a big box of crayons from Amazon, along with the silicone heart tray.  Some of the crayons were metallic, which added some cool effects to some of them.  Here they are...after they cooled, they literally popped right out for us.


Second, the lollipop card (I would love to give this person credit, but there is no link back on my pin).  I thought they were so cute! I just took the picture and added the words in Photoshop, printed them, cut the slits and slid the lollipop through. 


I bought small bags at Oriental Trading and attached them to squares of scrapbook paper (just cut two slits and tied the drawstring in the back).  I also added a disclaimer "DO NOT EAT."  :-)

We did these for my daughter and son's classes.  Just couldn't pick a favorite, so we did both for each!

It's projects like this that make me wish my boys were younger again. I guess I will just have to make them for the guys I work with. They can get in touch with their inner child. LOL
