(This photo was taken at a very specific angle to avoid including the burnt out light bulb)
This week we made melted crayon/wax paper hearts and hung them up with string.
We melted crayon shavings between the pages of a folded piece of wax paper with the iron on medium.
That is pretty much it.
But we learned some things:
1. Less is more on the crayon shavings. Too much and you get melted crayon all over your iron.
2. If you feel a little ADD while sharpening crayons for way too long...a cheese grater, a cheese slicer and (best of all) a potato peeler work more quickly. A trip through the dishwasher cleaned them right up.
3. Use a paper bag under your ironing. For real.
I've seen people use construction paper, felt, patterned paper and even pages from the J.Crew Catalog to make a Valentine's mobile. (Kelly Purkey did the J. Crew one...I can't find it on her blog..but it was crazy cute.)
My favorite shot:)
I need to go change that light bulb...
