Make your Own Recycle Crayons Stamp

 
Make your Own Recycle Crayons Stamp by Gloriann Irizarry
 
Are you ready for the kids to go back to school? It is almost time and with the wonderful task of back to school come the cleaning old supplies. Every year I come across this and since I like to recycle items I decided to find a better way to re use the one item we had the most from last year school supplies. Crayons and more crayons. Here I thought of a a way to use these for my Creative Paperclay Project I hope you enjoy this tutorial. 

Materials

Creative Paperclay Material
Old Crayons
One Glass Cup
Pot
Hot Water
Disposable Plastic Bowls
Hobby Knife
 
 
 
Gather all your left over crayons. 

 
Peel all the paper off the crayons
 
 
Break the crayons in small pieces and place them in the glass cup.

 
Place the cup in a pot full of water and place in a low heat.
Stir the mix until all the crayons are fully melted.

 
Once the crayon mix is all meted, carefully removed the hot glass cup from the hot water pot and pour the mix in the disposable plastic bowls. Place the hot mix in the fridge.
 

 
Wait about and hour and remove the bowl from the fridge.
Wiggle the plastic bowls until the wax mix is released.

 
Clean the edges out with the hobby knife.

 
Start carving your favorite design directly on the wax block.

 
You can make one continue pattern or a combination of patterns on the crayon wax block.

 
Have fun be creative and carve any designs you want. Once your satisfy the crayon block is ready. 

 
Grab your Creative Paperclay roll it out to your desire thickness.

 
Place your new stamp on the rolled out Creative Paperclay Material and apply even pressure to the stamp. Gently remove the stamp from the Creative Paperclay sheet and expose the new design under it. Now your stamp is ready to be use in any future paperclay projects.

What a cool idea!! God knows I have a million bits and pieces of crayon in the art room. What a great way to recycle/reuse and still have something creative for the kids to use :-)
