Okay, I know I said I was going to attempt the fabric hoop art project from Sew 4 Home over the weekend but I didn't get to it. And it wasn't because I was being lazy! Gabrielle and Alaina's first birthday party is on Saturday so I decided to make some of the recycled crayons from Makes & Takes as favors instead. Their party theme is butterflies so I broke out a butterfly cookie mold and 8 boxes of crayons and got to work.
My butterfly molds were pretty big so it took about 8 crayons to make each one and if I do this project again, I'll definitely get smaller ones. My plan is to put each butterfly in a cellophane bag with the shredded crayon labels at the bottom like grass. I'll post pictures of them all wrapped along with all of the other fun crafts from the girls' birthday bash next week. And the moral of this story? If I can do this, you can too!
