About Me

My photo
Ok so Misfit Crafter, let me explain. To me being a maker, crafty person, artsy being has made me feel less like a so called Misfit. So really Misfit I see as someone who just goes with the flow of life. So I am a Misfit Crafter. Also I am a mom of two beautiful beings & a wife & so much more.

Crayon Melting Project

Ok so my Kids and I jumped on the Crayon Melting Band Wagon.
I love it. Some of you may know I am a Paper Crafting Instructor at Michael's. If not, now you do. ;)
So anywho...I did a crayon melting demo a little while back and decided to make one with my kids too.
Because it was soo cool looking.

This is the one I did at Michael's..

 I cut out the "Create" on my Cricut. Here we used Crayola Crayons. I put white melted crayon on the Create sign to give it a waxy look.

 Here are my kids creations...
