The Crayon Box

Hello! I know it has been forever and a day since I posted on here but I had so much fun with this latest project that I just had to share!

I found these adorable ceramic crayons in the dollar section of Target! I fell in love with them right away and knew that I wanted to make a crayon box to hold them!


So I got out some chipboard and measured the crayons and starting cutting. The measurements I used are –

sides – 5 1/2″ by 1 3/8″

bottom – 8″ by 1 3/8″

front  – 8″ by 5 1/2″

back – 8″ by 5 1/2″

I used a product called Tear Mender to adhere the pieces to each other and after it had dried I used wide clear packing tape on all the edges.

Using an oval die cut as a guide I drew the semi circled line for the front of the crayon box.


Next I covered the box with BumbleBee Gingham/Linen paper from Doodlebug.

I used Darice’s wood glue, sponged it on with a foam brush and then smoothed the papers over the area of the box.


Using washi tape from WRMK I added the green lines typically found on a crayon box.


To make the label – I cut out an oval from black paper, stamped and embossed the word “crayons” and “6” using the fantastic Crayon Alphabet from Stampin’ Up! I then doodled some lines on there and wrote the word count under the number six!


Now my box was ready to hold the crayons!!

I love crayons and I love color so this was such a happy project to make!!

I hope you enjoyed stopping by today! Have a great day and REMEMBER –

 make beautiful things to show others you care!!
