Hello, friends. I am joining 4th Grade Froclics for “Monday Made It.” My first linky party!
How cute, right? I was SO excited to make these beauties and was only a tad disappointed at how labour intensive they were. My first batch definitely took longer because I was learning the ropes. You can snag some great instructions here. Here are my tips for making the process MUCH fast! 🙂 My three major mistakes were….
Mistake #2: Mixing brands of crayons. Off-brand crayons did not melt at the same rate as Crayola crayons. They were MUCH slower, but you know what they say about a watched crayon in the oven…The longer you leave the crayons in the oven after they are melted, the more the colors mixed.
Mistake #3: Using purple crayons. They turned the hearts black!
Plus, I’ll attached them to the Valentine (click here to snag the valentine) I made and whala – Valentine treats that do not cause cavities ready 38 days early!
Woohoo for a first Monday Made It! Thanks to Tara for hosting 🙂
