Cute Crayons

I was going to take a little break from blogging today, but as most of  you know, blogland doesn't sleep (or take holidays) so I figured I'd share this fun little Mod Podge craft I made up for part of my niece's Easter gift.


Here's what you need to make your own:

Materials:
-crayons
-pretty paper
-Mod Podge (optional: Sparkle Mod Podge)
-cutting mat, ruler, sponge brush, craft knife

Steps:
1) Measure the paper on the crayons to figure out how big to cut out your own papers.

Mine measured 17mm X 32mm
2) Cut out some pretty papers to match your crayons.


3) Use your sponge brush to paint Mod Podge onto the back of your paper.


4) Wrap the paper around your crayon.

Leave the original paper on
to help with adhesion.


 You can call it a day right there if you want, but you know how much I love my SPARKLE Mod Podge

If you want to add some sparkle too, just use your brush to gently paint on the Sparkle Mod Podge to the outside of your paper.  Be careful not to get it onto your crayons.


Now again, you can be done right there.  But if you want to make these crayons extra, extra special, take apart the box they came in, trace the shape onto some pretty paper, and cut it out.


Glue the paper onto the outside of the box and put it back together again.



My niece loves to colour anyway, but I hope she'll really love it with her very own personalized crayon pack.

I'll have loads more Easter gifts to share with you next week~

Have a great loooooooooooooooong weekend everyone!
