Easy gift for my aspiring artist

Have I told you how much I love Pinterest?  Pinterest is chuck full of talented people for me to glean ideas from.

This framed crayon inital was an easy fast inexpensive project I got from there. 

I estimate it costs me less than a box of candy canes. 

I used two boxes of crayons minus the neutral colors.  The crayons were 40 cents a box at the back-to-school sales.  I bought approximately 27 boxes.  seriously.  The cardstock was probably less than a dime.  The frame I've had for years and years.  But originally it was like $2 at Ikea.  So maybe a nice box of candy canes.  ;)

Here's the original, my inspiration.

I really like that she used a black frame.  And I thought I had a black frame.  But I can't seem to find it.  story of my life.  This deep purple frame actually matches well.

Now to wrap it so the crayons don't fall off . . .

Very cute! Three have been so many cute crayon ideas on there but I haven't seen this one. Awesome!

I am addicted to Pinterest. I'm spending less time blogging and on Facebook and more time oogling Pinterest ideas!

Uh, I so may steal this! :)

(Pinterest is evil. The green eyed monster in me comes out, not to mention the countless hours spent frivolously on there. )
