Did you spray your pan first or no?

Hi Jo, here is a whole tutorial. I didn’t spray the pans.

How did you melt the crayons? Microwave?

I melted them in the oven, Laura!

I love the heart shaped crayon idea. I want to try it out and give one to each of my students. Do you have the pattern that the heart sits on? I would love to have it.
Thanks

hi! I found some great heart shaped silicone “muffin” pans at dollars a! They did the trick perfectly

Just wondering if it matters what kind of crayons you use. I have a mish mash collection of different brands, including that were melted down once before already. Do you think it will make a difference?

I tried the glue gun method of attaching the crayons to the cards, and I couldn’t get them to stick at all. Even after cooling the dot of hot glue a bit, the crayon slid right off. Any tips for me?

Hi Liza, I got them to stick by adding a ton of glue and immediately pressing them to the paper. But I hear glue dots also work.

I was just wondering how you attached the crayon hearts to the cards?

I would use the glue gun.

I just tried the glue gun and it just melts the crayon. Now what do I do. Their V-day party is tomorrow.

Hi Jamie, oh, no! Mine didn’t do that. I understand glue dots work. Another option: buy little cellophane bags and wrap them up in them.

I did that with my son’s instead of printing one of those cards for every kid. I folded his Valentine’s note he had written for every child and put it into the bag with a lollipops and one of the hearts.

I use rubber cement, holds very good and doesn’t permanently stick to the crayon

Hi! I really want to make these heart shaped crayons with my kids but I am having a hard time finding the silicone baking pan. Can you tell me where you found yours?

Thanks so much!

Hi Sawyer,

I found mine at Ikea. I have also seen them at Target, 2 for $2.50, just make sure that those can take the heat.

I used the plastic sucker/candy molds. Got them at Walmart for $2.oo. Worked great.
