Heart Breaker Shirt - FAIL?
We had a craft FAIL, for some reason our Valentine's shirts did not turn out as we hoped.
When I saw the idea on Pinterest, and it seemed like a great idea and easy enough for the boys. An added bonus, was that I had all of the supplies on hand, so we gave it a try.
We gathered the super simple supply list:
sandpaper, crayons, shirts, card board, scissors, pen, and foam letters
I traced the foam letters, so that we would have the words "Heart Breaker."
The tutorial said to remember the image would be reversed...I did my R backwards and it had to be corrected.
I then cut everything out, and made a very simple heart shape.
I set up a place for the kids to color the heart.
The texture of the sandpaper, was a strange surface to color.
I colored the letters black, while the kids went to town coloring on their sandpaper hearts.
I setup the colored hearts, used parchment paper, and used the iron to melt the crayon image.
Not sure what happened, but the sand paper seemed to absorb the crayon.
I wasn't happy with the out come...as the heart barely showed up.
*I love the concept of the project, but I cant pin point what what went wrong.
