Make your own Valentines - Melted Heart Crayon

I saw this idea on Pinterest.  But I made a few changes to make the process easier.First: Soak the Crayons in water.  It makes it easier to remove the paper.
 Remove the paper and place the crayons in a freezer bag.
Next: seal the bag and lay it on the ground outside.  Use a hammer to break up the crayons into smaller pieces.  Other blogs suggested cutting the crayons, but it was easier to break them up with the hammer and it is a great stress reliever.
Place the pieces in your silicone shaped pan, so that there is approximately a 1/2 inch of broken crayons.  Place the silicon pan on a cookie sheet and melt the crayons in the oven for 15 minutes at 250 degrees. 
After, the crayons cool and harden, pop them out of the silicone pan.  Unfortunately, I have not found a good way to remove all of the specs from the silicone pan, so I will not be able to use it for regular cooking.  This is the finished project.  Lillie cut out the paper squares, and glued the paper and the heart to the cardstock.
