Mickey Mouse Crayons

In my previous post, I shared with you the Mickey Mouse coloring books that I made for my daughter's 2nd birthday party.  Well, you have to have crayons to go along with them, right??  So... all the goodie bags also got these decked out crayons: 

This idea came to me sort of by accident.  I hadn't planned on decorating the crayons but I had a big pile of the negatives from the invites I made for the party (you can see those here).   "Oh boy!" fit perfectly across the front of these crayon boxes.  I took a piece of  8"x3.75" black paper, adhered a piece of red 8"x3", and wrapped it around the crayon box, securing it with two strips of ATG glue.  

Here is a side view, so you can see that the paper goes all the way around the box.  

These really made the crayons look cute.  They served no functional purpose of course but they looked cute!
