On a Roll … Crayon Roll That Is!

I smell crayons

Ever since I was in kindergarten, I’ve loved the smell of a box of new, fresh, Crayola crayons.  I could hardly wait to open a new box and create free- form designs that I could color creatively.  Of course there were also color books that I enjoyed.

For a long time, I’ve wanted to make crayon rolls.  When I accepted an opportunity to be a vendor at a craft show, I quickly went to work making a handful of these beauties with a more sophisticated, but fun, pallet of fabrics.

My thought is that parents could use these as stocking stuffers for their children.  Having a personal set of crayons in a pretty little holder is by far better for children who use crayons to color at restaurants, appointments etc.  There aren’t those pesty communal germs (crayons in other kids’ mouths, nose …) to worry about as a parent, and your child can enjoy their very own artist gems.

When not in use, the crayons are simply rolled up and tied.  Easy peasy!

They look so pretty displayed in a muslin lined basket.  Since I have some extras on my hand right now, and if you’re interested … just let me know.

    Uh…ohmygawd. These are so cute and they look so good all together. I hope you make oodles of cash so you can buy me more presents this year! (heh heh heh…just kidding…kinda)

    Love you! You kick @$$ at being retired!

    Unfortunately I had a four day job lined up, so I can’t sell these at the craft fair. They’re up for grabs right now. Don’t you go worrying about X-Mas. We’ve got you covered … hopefully soon.
    Hugs and kisses!
