Fun Crayons and Coloring Book

 I have seen these fun crayons in a lot of different places and have really been wanting to do them myself! I found this silicone baking pan at JoAnn's. I used a 40% off coupon so it was a little less expensive.

I bought 2 boxes of crayons and tore off all the paper and then broke them up and put them in the pan.

I used a cookie sheet and covered it with wax paper in case anything fell off. 

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees (I swear this took forever, but it could have just been my oven). Then once your pan is full of crayons put it in the oven for 5-10 minutes. I peaked in every 5 minutes to make sure things were going well. I didn't realize that when I did it the crayons would be very liquidy. So I'm glad that I put the cookie sheet under since the silicone pan is very flexible.

 After the crayons were done melting I put them in the freezer for 15 minutes and they hardened up super fast. The pan is perfect because getting the crayons out was super easy!
 I also made a little coloring book.

I simply took white computer paper and cut it into 4ths. Then I took a piece of cardstock and cut it to the same size. I used my Cricut to cut the letter of the child's name I was giving this to and glued it on!

To put it all together I used my sewing machine and sewed the top! It was awesome! This way I figured they could be as Creative as they wanted to be!!
 I'm so excited about how easy, cheap, and fun these turned out!

What a great idea! I love how you sewed the color book together - I never would have thought of that. I'll add that to my project list that I hope to accomplish this lifetime!! Ha, kidding :)
