Flower Crayon Valentine’s

Becca and I thought for a while what to give as Valentines.  I decided that kids get lots of candy, so I would make something this year that wasn’t candy but fun for the kids instead.  We were making crayon flowers from old broken crayons and thought that they would be a great gift for her preschool class.   Becca loved the idea!  If you didn’t see our post on making the Flower Shaped Crayons stop by for a step-by-step how to.

 

The first thing I did was make a cute label for Becca to put on her Valentines. This was probably the hardest part because; we had to come up with a clever saying. Once, we had our saying, “You make my world colorful”, I used excel to create the label.  Then, we cut them using a paper cutter to get straight lines.

While, I was cutting the labels, Becca placed the crayon flowers we made earlier in a 4″ by 6″ clear plastic bag.

We then cut card stock 4 1/4″ by 5″ and folded them in half.

Next, we place the crayon stuffed bags inside of our folded card stock.

Then, we staples them…Make sure that the staples are face up so you can cover them with the labels.

Then, Becca use a glue stick to apply our printed label to the card stock.

Becca couldn’t be any more excited with how they turned out.  She is ready to do her first Valentine exchange at school!

These would also make a cute party favor.  If you do not want to make melted crayon figures, you could add a few new crayons and the above saying would work too.
