We weren’t sure if his class party was candy-free, so crayons seemed like a great alternative treat.
It was simple to use MDS to create a block pattern (square punches stretched) and add the circles (Big Bold Birthday circle pattern digital stamp). The white word blurb is the Round Bubble Punch, stretched to accommodate our greeting.
After the graphics were done, we got to work on our crayons! When I was in Orlando last month for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference (too much fun!), we stopped at Downtown Disney and I picked up a Lego ice cube tray from the Lego Store.
We didn’t use the ice cube tray for ice…we used it to make custom Lego minifig crayons!
A few tips for making your own Lego Minifigure Crayons from the ice cube mold:
- We found that a sharp knife worked best for cutting the peeled crayons (thank you Pampered Chef!)
- The crayons settled quite a bit so it helped to heap the crayon pieces on the mold
- Our oven was set to 350 degrees
- The crayons turned out most colorful when we didn’t melt them too long
My son is SO excited to share these with his class today!! Happy Valentine’s Day parties to all of you who don’t have school tomorrow!
If you already have your Valentines finished for this year, don’t despair! These would be cute for a birthday party or any other seasonal treat.
