I ♥ Valentine's Day!


I LOVE pink, so naturally I love Valentine's Day decorations, paper, stickers, you name it!  These are some mailboxes I made for the kid's teachers and grandparents last year.  We put little notes inside that said "The Top 10 Things I Love about Mrs. ______".  They loved them so much, I think I'm going to do it again this year.  I bought the mailboxes at Target (the best place in the world) and added the paper and ribbon.  They really weren't too hard but I'm going to try modge podge this year so I'll post pics when I get those done.
These were also fun to make with the kids.  It's so fun and simple to do, especially when you are snowed in!
First you use a pencil sharpener to sharpen the crayons onto wax paper.  We used red, pink and blue.
Then using the iron on the cool setting, iron the sheets together.  You might put the sheets between a towel so you don't ruin your iron.
Let them cool, cut out heart shapes and voila!  You have a great Valentine's window treatment! :)
Just be prepared for the big mess you will have to clean up!
