Valentine Crayons!

Looking for a great and inexpensive craft for Valentine's Day??? Well, Matthew and I made one the other day, and so far, it's a big hit! Simply take all your broken pieces of crayons you have laying around and plac ethem into silicon molds. I bought a 2 pack at Target for $2.50. Then place in the oven at 250 degress until they all melt. When they come out, let them cool and they pop right out! We placed them in cute bags, attached a tag and WAH-LAH instant and inexpensive Valenttine's gifts for all his friends. I have to admit that I have been enjoying them too :)
