Kids Valentine's Day Crayon Molds

Why oh why didn't I start this project three weeks ago?  I certainly have been thinking of it for at least that long.  I have, for the last several years, been firmly against buying Valentines for my kids to hand out because I have all of this stuff it seems silly not to use it.  Well, of course it does unless you're the one who has to make them.  For a project like this I normally give myself several weeks, but no, there was I was yesterday glued to my oven for most of the day while I melted crayon after crayon, and then in my craft room cutting, cutting, and then assembling.  I even made my youngest write out his name on all of them this morning right before I took him (and his Valentines) to school!  Clearly I'm running behind.

So here they are.  The idea is a complete scraplift from Pinterest.  I wish I could link to the original poster but the pin lead to this flickr account.  Oh well, I tried!  I thought it looked so cute and it would be soooo easy.  Famous last words!   

So tonight I get to do it all over again!  Okay, maybe not exactly.  The crayons have ALL been melted.  I just need to make up the cards for my other son's Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite crayon mold.  Stay tuned for that one!
