Beary Best Friends crayon caddy

Wow…I’m late today!  Still catching up from vacation, and prepping for a class tonight.  That’s almost done…just need to clean up my studio now!  lol!

Here is a little tote bag I made up for the craft fair a couple weeks ago, using the Beary Best Friends stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Favor BIgz Die Box!  This Crayon Caddy is not my original idea…I’ve seen a couple versions in different places.  In addition to the 8 little cards on the ring to color, they can also color the front of the box!  It would make a nice church activity box, I think!

I don’t have a picture of them all together…but they were nice and colorful because I used primary colors to make them.  This one is Brilliant Blue and Yo Yo Yellow.  The handle is secured to the sides of the Favor Box with Mini Brads.  The Fancy Favor Box holds the package of 24 crayons and ring of cardstock images perfectly!

Got to get back to work…have a great day!

EDIT:  I’ve had so many people asking, I’ll just put it on here.  I priced them originally at $4.95, but reduced them to $3.95 and they sold much better.  My only costs were the crayons (25 cents), binder ring, cardstock and a couple mini brads.  They did get lots of attention because they were so colorful and little girls (7-12) picked them up a lot!

I have a couple left if anyone wants them!  lol!

Very cute idea, Connie! I am doing a craft fair this Friday and underestimated the amount of time it takes to assembly the Fancy Favors box so when I saw this I had to wonder how long it took you to make them and attach the handle and bear image. May I ask how much you sold them for? I bought a bag full of the 24 crayon size boxes for $.25 a box when they were on sale for back to school and now am wondering what to do with them…this looks like a great idea! Jan

These are great. I think I will make some for the RMDH – I go there once a month, stamping and bought some boxes of crayons last month (now I wish I had bought more!)…They will love them…thanks for sharing a great idea.
