Fun Valentine's Day Brooches

Abby and I decided to make some Valentine's Day brooches.  I had some extra backer board which I ran through Xyron and then we added painted tissue paper and heart confetti to it.  After that I added glitter to fill in all the extra areas to fill in the glue.  We then die cut the paper in my Cuttlebug using a Sizzix die.  The last step was hot glueing a brooch back and all the pieces together.  I think they turned out fantastic.

Square Crayons...

I bought a ton of crayons back at the beginning of the school year.  I wanted to make crayons for Abby and her classmates.  Originally I was planning on doing alphabet crayons...however, the cast iron mold is missing somewhere in my house. 

So we decided to try and use a square sillicon mold that we received.  Abby loves them.  I took 2 boxes of 24 crayons...and made 24 square crayons.  She will be able to color and stack them.  I love how the colors turned out.

WOW....we have been slackers

However, Crafty Abby and I have been busy.  :)
Abby is helping momma use her Cuttlebug.  Isn't that sweet.
