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 –
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:
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!!
