can you handle one more LOVE/VALENTINE related post? i hope so, because this one is too cute to pass by.
i found the idea on Pinterest to melt crayons to create little valentime hearts. it was very easy to do, and my daughter totally loved breaking the crayons.
once i had the crayons melted down and cooled, and my clever husband printed the heart base for the card, i got to work attaching the crayon hearts. the wonderful thing about Tombow having so many different adhesives is that there is always something that will work to get the job done. for this project it was the Tombow Power Tabs! these sticky squares are strong…strong enough to hold the crayon to the cardstock without the fear of it falling off. i packaged the hearts in individual plastic bags, so they wouldn’t “draw” on each other, but once in the bag i didn’t want the crayon to come off the card and color on that. but they stayed put with the Power Tabs.
thank you Pinterest, the original creator of the heart crayon, and TOMBOW for making our Valentine’s homemade and extra special.

That is so cute and my kids would have a blast doing that. Thanks for sharing!!
I love these crayons! I like to do crafts with my grandchildren-this is perfect. Valentine’s is past this year, but possibly birthday invites too! thank you!
These are so cute–the kiddos will love them.
These look good enough to eat. Did you use a cookie cutter to do the hearts?

i was actually worried about that sending them to school. i told my kids “tell your friends these are CRAYONS!”
i had Wilton heart shaped silicone baking cups. they just popped right out!
Awesome Idea!! Thanks for the idea, I didn’t thought about using the Power Tabs to glue the crayon.
