The first step is gathering all the broken crayons and peeling all the paper off. Of course, they don't have to be broken to start with, but it's a good way to use up the bits and pieces that are getting too small to colour with.
Then I cut a 4-5" wide strip of wax paper, folded it (I used wonder clips to hold the sides in place) and sewed the 3 open sides, with the crayon hearts inside and the paper heart on top. For the final touch, I found a cute saying on Pinterest, mostly so people would know that they were crayons. We received some Christmas Tree shaped crayons in December and thought they were soap, so I wanted to make sure the recipients knew what they were. I used my Brother labelmaker, which is pretty easy and the kids liked pushing the print and cut buttons. I found a couple phrases, but my kids liked
Happy Valentine's Day, for "crayon" out loud!
Two new Swoon bundles!
Also, have you checked these awesome sewing tees?! I have a couple and I just love them, they're super soft and comfortable and let everyone know I love to sew.
