Valentine from the Teacher
This is the 2nd year I've made my kids heart shaped crayons for their Valentine from me. Last year I melted the crayons on a cookie sheet and cut them out with a cookie cutter. It was a little messy and took awhile becuase I had to keep washing the cookie cutter each time to get the extra waxy mess off. So this year when I saw these heart shaped ice cube trays at Target I thought they'd be perfect molds. I've seen tons of tutorials for doing this on other blogs so it looked easy peasy. But a word to the wise- these trays are not made for heating in an oven! You can definitely see where the edges started drooping. And we had some pretty nice fumes in the kitchen for awhile. Oops, now I know. But they still turned out cute!
