Simple materials are used to make this effective and arty paper craft for Valentines Day.
We cut out a heart shape from some cardboard and then just experimented with different colors of crayons, different colors of paper and different colors of dye. These crayoned outlines were made by crayoning back and forth around the edge of the heart. You could also just trace around and around the shape. Then paint in, around or all over the shape with some paper dyes, food coloring or runny paint. The crayon will resist the liquid and give the lovely contrasts you see here. It is a lot of fun deciding what combinations to try. Then you can make a lot of cards for all those Valentines! I quite like them as a group though, so perhaps I could make just one large card for just one Valentine!!
