February: Valentine's 2009

God Bless Martha Stewart.

These crayon hearts have been a part of lots of my Valentine's. They are darling alone, but even more darling together. These are simple, fun and very pretty.

Crayon shavings, with shades of red, orange and pink are spread between two sheets of wax paper, then using a warm iron, blend the colors together to get a 'stain glass' effect. The more shavings there are, the darker the colors.

Be sure to wipe your iron thoroughly with a paper towel after using it on the wax paper, because it does bleed through the wax paper. I found this out the hard way.
