Crayon Birthday Card

For as long as I can remember I have loved crayons, and been fascinated by the colors and the designs on them.  I was so excited when – way long time ago – Stampin’ Up! came out with a stamp set called “Kid Prints”.  I was so excited because guess what it had …an adorable crayon image in the set.  With that stamp in mind I set out to make a birthday card that looked like a box of crayons!  Here is how the front looked –

A crayon box made from Summer Sun cardstock and stamped. "Perfect Plaids" from Stampin Up! were used to add the green lines!

When I figured out how my box would look I stamped 5 crayons in bright colors on glossy cardstock and cut them out! I inserted and attached them in the “box” so they would not fall out.  Added a message on the inside flap – ” Hope it’s colored with lots of fun!!”  Adding a small piece of velcro made it so the flap would stay shut until opened! Under the flap it looks like this:

The message appears when you open the flap and there are 5 stamped and cut out crayons attached inside.

This card has been around for many years now but I realized that I have given copies of this card to many a child to help make their birthdays more beautiful.  And I thought that this was a great time to share the idea with you!!  Thanks for stopping by – have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

Only 2 more posts to go – this one is # 48!!
