7. Pop the mold in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the wax has melted. If you do use a silicone mold like I did, then be sure to put a cookie tray UNDER it when you put it in the oven otherwise it is so unstable that pulling it out of the oven after the fact, may cause the melted wax to run out and spill out of the molds.
9. I then used my red ink pad and the Valentine's Stamp I chose. I stamped my Valentine's Day message on one side. I will take this opportunity to shamelessly plug A.C. Moore craft store (woot, woot, CJ). It is my favorite, by far. I get all of my stamps and art supplies from A.C. Moore. They have the best selection and the prices are better than anywhere else I have found. Michael's is the worst and Hobby Lobby comes in second for price and selection. I got my Valentine's Day stamp for 1.00 at A.C. Moore.
10. I then used my individual letter stamps to stamp the names of the children in Q's class (get the list of names from your teacher ahead of time) on the back of each one of the tags. I also made several additional ones for his best friends and our neighborhood children. I think I got this little set of letter stamps at the Dollar Tree -- yet another of my favorite places and yes, they were only a dollar.
P.S. I know you all are jealous of my sweet BLUE counter tops! They are pretty awesome, I know. Despite the fact that they are "Cool, Rocking Out" (Caroline Q) I am getting some new ones next week!
