I liked the crayon melting idea. I bought the heart mold. Figured it was $14 and I'll have it forever. I had leftover crayons from Christmas (I'll post that pic too) and D1 always brings me her 'broken' ones and refuses to use them... so I have quite a collection. I am also the mom that keeps a ziplock in my purse of 'restaurant crayons'. Anytime we get a few with the kids menu I keep them so I can keep her busy at restaurants that don't give them away. I have a big stash at this point. All meltable in my mind. What to do BESIDES the crayon heart?
Many people post uses for paint swatches. I always love the ideas. Then it hit me. Crayons... color swatches... I'm sure i can put something together. I went to Home Depot last week and got a stack of a few different reds and then I went to Lowe's this week and got a few more. I broke out the cricut machine and went through my cartridges looking for hearts. This is what I came up with!
