Inspiration Overload

15Aug08

Two posts in one day, yes I know. I did say there would be more links though. This post will be part inspiration, part tutorial, part whatever else I find.

I really want to make one of these crayon rolls for each of my kiddos. We are flying this Christmas to SC, and I’m planning on making them each a goodie bag. I love the concept of this crayon roll in particular because each space matches the color of the crayon that it holds. How clever is that? I’m hoping it will help my little girl (who will be 2 1/2 come this Christmas) with her colors. I’m thinking maybe I can add little cross-stitched rectangles with each color so she can associate more.
