I wanted to feature a cute card that is sooo simple to make and so perfect for a 3 or 4 year old…it has 6 crayons tucked in a pouch inside so that the little boy or girl can color in their own card…and by using a gender neutral base color of Real Red or Brilliant Blue you could make a batch of these and have one on hand for boy/girl birthdays whenever they come around – and right now back to school bargains make a box of 24 crayons around 20c a box – this would be enough for 4 cards meaning the crayons cost only 5c per card!

To make it simply take a piece of 12×12 cardstock and cut your base to 12″ x 4″ – I used Real Red. Then using your scoring blade score it at 5″, 10″, 10 1/4″ and 11 1/2″. You then fold the score lines and create your pouch. To ensure that the pouch to hold the crayons stays in place, I use a staple to secure it which I cover with an embellishment but you could also use Sticky Strip.

I stamped my bear scene using stamps from Beary Best Friends (pg 34) and I stamped a sentiment on the inside using a stamp from Beary Nice Wishes (pg 36). I trimmed a piece of Brilliant Blue and used my Scallop Edge Punch to make a border. I attached my bears onto it and tied around a piece of Certainly Celery 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon. I secured the layers to the card base, added the crayons inside and voila – a very cute, very simple and very quick to make card for those little people :-)
