Boredom Buster.

Take some crayon shavings and a t-shirt.


Decide on your design and put a piece of cardboard in the shirt so the crayon doesn't bleed through on to the other side of it. Then sprinkle the crayon shavings onto your design.



Next place a piece of wax paper over the crayon shavings and place an iron on it for about 30 seconds.


Take the wax paper off and let it cool a little before moving the shirt....and wa-la! We have created a cupcake and a princess with flowers on one side.


And an 'A' and a rainbow on the other side.

Oh and if you do a design on both sides put wax paper under the shirt too to prevent the design on the other side from bleeding on to the table (like what happened to me).


I found this idea at Write.Click.Scrapbook

I am thankful for whoever invented these waxy little colored sticks.

Oh and I believe that the shirt will need to be washed in cold water in future washings.

Oh, I would have been all over this when I was a kid! Love the smell of melting crayons and wax paper. And those are some seriously cute shirts! WOW!

I would recommend handing to dry and not using a drier to dry them unless you want crayon on everything else in the drier.
