Hi! I’m Trisha from btanders and I love Stampin’ & Craftin’ (hence the name of my blog). I am SUPER excited to be guest posting here at Craft-O-Maniac. Jen has so many awesome projects. I love, love, love seeing all the inspiring ideas she has!
I’ve had a blog for a few years, but recently really started pouring my heart and soul into it. I am obsessed with anything crafty. My love of crafting started with scrapbooking, grew to include stamping, and most recently includes sewing. I LOVE spending time "creating" and I hope you do too!Today I would like to share with you an idea I put together for Teacher Appreciation Week. Welcome the EDIBLE CRAYON.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the teachers who educate our children and make the world a brighter place! As the end of the year is wrapping up this would make for another great Teacher Appreciation gift.
My girls and I were busy last night getting our gifts ready for Teacher Appreciation Week. Please welcome the edible crayon!
There are several templates out there on how to make edible crayons, but the one I found that I like best is from Parties by Hardie.
STEP 1: Prepare the candy melts according to the package directions.
STEP 2: Lay out waxed paper. Dip one half of each pretzel into the melted candy. Shake off the excess
and lay gently on the wax paper to dry.
STEP 3: After they have dried, dip the other half into the melted candy. Shake off the excess and lay gently on the waxed paper to dry.
STEP 4: While pretzels are drying, print the pretzel crayon wrapper templates onto colored paper. Cut out the wrappers. You can get the template for the crayon wrappers here.
STEP 5: Take the pretzels and cover with the wrapper. You can use double sided tape or regular tape to
keep it closed. I wouldn't recommend glue since these will be eaten.
The final step is to package them however you would like. I put them in a cello bag with a little note that read, "Thanks for making C-G-B a bright place for our children!"
You could also package them in a crayon box. You can find a great crayon box template here.
I work in a school district, so I made some extra crayons to place in the teacher's lounges. I placed them in a clear container with a little note.
Happy National Teacher Day/Teacher Appreciation Week!
SO SO CUTE, I just love this idea, thanks f or sharing it here at C.O.M. jen
