Save These Ideas For Next Year!

I'm slightly behind on blogging, but not really. I could have posted this sooner, but I didn't want to want to give away all of my gift ideas. So, save this post for next year. These crafts are fun, easy, and creative gifts to give out for LOVE day!

Decorative TIC TACS: You will need: tic tacs, scrapbook paper, glue, and ribbon (if desired). Wrap tic tacs in any holiday paper, glue and decorate with ribbon. The outcome was much prettier than what you see here. I just forgot to take photos of the end result.
Heart Shaped Crayons: Fairly simple. You can use old or new crayons. Peel the paper off. Cut the crayons up. Fill any shaped mold with crayons. Put in a pre-heated oven at 250 degrees. Melt completely. Pull out of oven. Let wax solidify. Pop out of mold. Wrap in a cellophane baggie or stick on to paper. This time around, I stuck our heart shaped crayons onto paper and wrote, "Have A Happy Valentine's Day For 'Crayon' out loud'.
Next up, Candy Ipods! Supplies needed: box of sweet tarts, rolos, string, scrapbooking paper, and glue. Additional items that add to the "realness" of an actual ipod - ipod template for the screen and reel, and a lamination machine. "Pump up the jam!"
