just a notebook
but it's all hopped up on cuteness.
simple fun notebooks from wal-mart....with many many ribbons tied to the side.
this is the mysterious crayon project!
using old crayons...i made new ones.
i bought these silicon letter trays.
(you can make ice or bake in them too.)
first break the crayons up and put the pieces into the shapes on the trays.
set the silicone trays on a cookie sheet for stability.
preheat your oven to 250-ish.
put sheet of trays into the warm oven and check at 10 minutes.
when all the crayons pieces have become liquid....they are done!
remove the sheet from the oven and let cool for at least an hour...or 3 or 4.
the liquid wax was beautiful! it was such bright colors.
i was loving it!
i wanted to pour it all over something and paint with it.
maybe another time....
each letter crayon is about 2 inches tall.
they are still crayons....
just now instead of being dull shaped old crayons in the bottom of the box
they are adorable bright alphabet shapes.
i love them.
i saw this on someone's blog in september and can't find it again...so props to you - whoever you are!
and now for the new obsession.
who knew i would love this craft so much?
these are mega bottle caps...2 inches across.
fill the bottle cap with whatever you want....
then pour glossy accents (also found in your scrapbook isle near stamping stuff)
over the entire little scene you've created.
it's SO EXCITING!!!
then when you come in the next morning....
the sun shines on all your little creations.
the "glue" has dried and made a clear seal over your scene.
glue magnets to the back of each bottle cap.
a new addiction is born.
a few things i have learned....
* everything red turns orange - so avoid red papers.
* keep the bottle upside down all the time and don't shake it (to avoid air bubbles.)
* adhesive magnets probably still need to be glued on.
i could make little scenes for hours!
this idea came straight from ali edwards.
i am still crazy busy.
i bet you are too.
but first....a quick nap.
