Custom made crayons


 

Why not make some custom crayons to use at home, for a friend or to add as party favors in your birthday gift bags? 

What you need:

1. Old, broken crayons

2. Silicone muffin molds (any shape will work fine)

3. A baking tray to set the muffins on 

4. A preheated oven set to about 170 degrees Celsius 

Directions:

1. Peel the paper off of your crayons.

2. Place the broken crayon pieces into the silicone muffin molds.

3. Place the muffin molds on the baking tray and place the tray into your preheated oven.  Allow them to “bake” for about 15 minutes.

4. Take the molds out of the oven and allow them to cool for about an hour.

5. Pop the crayons out of the molds and put them to paper!

Just speak!

Bonjour tout le monde!

Saint Valentin est ce vendredi , le 14 Février, et j’ai décidé de faire des cartes de la Saint-Valentin pour mes petits élèves. Les cartes s’inspirent d’un projet de bricolage d’une architecte nommée Natalie Kramer. En plus d’être architecte, Natalie est aussi blogueuse et contribue à handmadecharlotte.com.

Ma fille de deux ans, et moi, avons beaucoup apprécié ce projet en utilisant des timbres fait maison. Pour les faire, nous avons pris un peu de papier de mousse et l’avons mis dans des bouchons de bouteilles de lait. Très facile. Ensuite, nous avons suivi les indications de Natalie et très vite, nous sommes retrouvés avec une collection de cartes originales.

Un grand merci à Natalie Kramer et à Handmade Charlotte pour cet atelier!

Bonne fin de semaine et très belle Saint-Valentin!

Gros bisous,

Danielle

Hello Everyone!

Valentine’s Day is this Friday the 14th of February and I decided to make some Valentine’s Day cards for my little students using a DIY project by an architect named Natalie Kramer. Besides being an architect Natalie also just so happens to be a blogger and contributer to handmadecharlotte.com.

My daughter of two years, and I, very much enjoyed making some of our stickers using homemade stamps. To make them we took some foam paper and stuck them onto some milk bottle tops. Very easy and affordable. Then we just followed Natalie’s tutorial and before you know it, we had a collection of original handmade cards.

A big thank you to Natalie Kramer and to Handmade Charlotte for providing us with the tutorial!

Have a wonderful rest of the week and a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Big hugs,

Danielle
