It’s a card and gift in one!


I’ve had this design in mind for a while and was excited to finally make it. The Myths & Magic Suite was perfect to bring it to life. Such cute characters for both boys and girls and I just adore this Specialty Designer Paper- all that sparkly embossed glitter is GORGEOUS (or handsome-lol)!!!

Imagine the delight this could bring to a sick child. Or to a special birthday boy or girl. Or even as fun favors for your kid’s party guests. What child doesn’t light up when they see brand new pointy crayons and cute characters just waiting to be colored?! Bring on the FUN!

  1. I saw your project on Pinterest and fell in love with it. I’m going to make some for my Granddaughter and her friends a daycare and keep some in the car when she is traveling. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • Ah, Nancy thanks for your kind words. You made my day! I love your ideas and hope your granddaughter and her friends enjoy them! 🙂

  2. What a brilliant idea!! I did “color me cards” and donated them to a foster kids program. Your card is so much more efficient. I glued a small box that held a box of 4 Crayola crayons onto the back of the card. I really like your idea much better. I have one question. Is there a reason you wrapped the flaps around back of the card rather than gluing them to the inside? Gluing them inside would make the back flat, but maybe the flap inside would interfere with the crayons…just a thought. Your cards are precious and will surely please a little one!! I’m sad that this set and DSP are retiring!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

    • Loved your feedback, Teri! What a great thing you did with your donations!!! In answer to your question: I preferred the Crayons to lay flat and even, so that’s why I chose to wrap the flaps around to the back, but you could absolutely put the flaps to the inside if you preferred! Design works either way. Glad you asked! I may stock up on this DSP for my grand-kiddos… it’s been a big hit!:)

  3. This is a wonderful idea!!! Thanks for the share & video!!!

  4. Brilliant combination of images to color and the crayons!

  5. This is a great card to have on hand when you go with the kids to a restaurant that doesn’t have coloring menus and crayons or the Dr’s office or anywhere kids would get antsy!

  6. I love the crayon kit as a fun “color it yourself” card. So often kids don’t always really pay as much attention to the card because it’s not something they can DO anything with. This is super cute – and would be a GREAT! idea for party favors, too. Or something to stash for a special treat if you have to take your kids somewhere that they will need to be occupied.
