Stained Glass Hearts

I had every intention of getting this post up before Valentine's Day. But as you can see, that didn't happen. We made stained glass hearts this year and they turned out great. Start by sharpening some crayons and catch the shavings onto a paper plate. Sprinkle your shavings onto some wax paper and cover it with another layer of wax paper. Cover with newspaper and iron. Be sure to put down some newspaper first or you'll mess up your iron. Allow to cool and cut out your shapes. We might do this again for St. Patrick's Day.

What a great idea! In elementary school we used tissue paper glued to wax paper in shapes. Of course, you had to use so much glue and eventually it became the color of the tissue paper. Hmm, yeah crayons seem like a cleaner option in that respect. :)
