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!!
