Duct Tape Crayon Roll {And My Secret Obsession}

I’m obsessed. My parents and sisters will tell you it’s something I’ve always been obsessed with these wonderful, colorful things. Yes, folks. Crayola crayons. I love them. No other crayon compares. Those other crayon companies should just give it up, because they’ll never match up to Crayola. Anyone else out there with me? Maybe?

Well, now that I have that out there, you can probably understand why I absolutely had to make these crayon rolls when I saw them at Tutus and Tea Parties
They’re a fun way to package up a few crayons and even make a cute little present. Oh and patterned and colored duct tape? Yes, please! This was my first duct tape project, but I’ll definitely be doing more. Some of the patterns and colors are so fun (although I’m going to have to avoid the Justin Bieber duct tape I saw the other day—yeah, that one was a little…interesting).
There you have it. A little project all tied up with ribbon to feed my obsession. :)
