Today I would like to explore the wonderful world of crayons!
(Boy, that was fun to make the rainbow letters!)
Yes, I am an adult. Yes, I admit to still coloring in coloring books!
- Waxed paper
- Sharpener or paring knife
- Clothes iron
I would also add some pressed flowers in amongst the crayon shavings. Remember, the crayon shavings don't have to fill all the space, if you are doing add ins. And also remember that crayon will melt and spread.
Check out to see what die cuts you may have that will work!
I like the shaped frames, as I think they add a nice 'body'
Another idea for framing is to take any discarded mats that you have (from pre-purchased picture frames), and place the crayon melts art into the middle. Use double stick tape to stick the two mats together, and you have a nice piece that can be hung in a window. There also is no 'right' way or 'wrong' way to hang it!
The Tru Life crayons from Crayola I discovered a few years ago. I love the natural skin color ones. They really fill a huge gaping hole in skin color tones!
I bought mine at Office Depot! They all have tri-color tips.
