As we were searching for ideas for our own Valentine’s Day cards, we came across the cutest Do_It-Yourself Post from skiptomylou and wanted to share it with you. We love Butterfly’s or Flutterby’s and here is a way to combine butterflies and Valentine’s day. How perfect is that?

Thank you Skiptomylou for your wonderful Valentine Creativity.

Crayon shavings melted between wax paper and then cut into hearts make a beautiful display in windows. This is an oldie but goodie craft that we love.  I can’t think of anything more cheerful or happy hanging from a window.We made lots of crayon shavings with a pencil sharpener.

Place shavings on a piece of wax paper.

Either place another piece of wax paper on top or fold over the edge to cover all of the shavings.

Iron on the lowest setting for about 1 second. You can go always go longer after checking to see if the shavings have melted. Be careful to not burn the wax paper. It is a good idea to do the ironing on a piece of newspaper. Some shavings could leak out of the sides and it does leave a residue underneath the wax paper. If you are worried about your iron, just place your wax paper between two sheets of newspaper or scrap paper.

I think it is easiest for kids to trace around cardboard so I took cereal boxes and cut out heart shapes to be used for patterns. This is where you get variety so let the kids draw the hearts.
