This one is for your entertaining pleasure.

This is what we tried to make.

I am sure you have seen on Pinterest, most likely with a comment about how easy it was.

Here is how ours went.

We used pencil sharpeners to make the crayon flakes and placed it on the wax paper. Now maybe this was our mistake – we decided to add glitter to the mix, you know to add a little sparkle.

We (my girls and I) folded the wax paper in half and then began ironing it. valentine photo shoot 024

The first time was a total fail. valentine photo shoot 025

So we tried again. And it was still a big pile of poopy looking crayon with glitter in it. Oh, and there was melted crayon all over my iron. Some how it came right through the wax paper. Good times. valentine photo shoot 027

I did actually cut some hearts out of them but they really just looked like heart shaped poop and I didn’t feel like that was very Valentiney.

So how about you, have you had any craft fails lately?

Thanks for stopping by.
