homemade lego valentine's cards

Following the Lego obsession that our household has found itself in, we made Lego valentine's day cards for Chace's class this year.

The actual cards are white cardstock, simply designed in black, white & red (with the hope that Chace would color each one and sign his own name - unfortunately by that point he was over the whole thing and only a couple actually got colored...) The Lego "hearts" are homemade dot candy piped onto the paper side of freezer paper. I ran the freezer paper through my inkjet first to print the outlines of the "blocks", then loosely cut around them before piping the icing on (using this royal icing recipe).

They were a big hit, especially by his teacher (who thinks I may have too much free time on my hands :)
