Mini Crayon Wallet


These mini wallet purses are super-frugal and lots of fun to make! Added bonus —  no sewing is involved!! They are the perfect size for a few crayons, small toys, coins, or other tiny treasures.

To make your own,  you will need one 5″ x 7″ piece of craft foam, colored duct tape, ribbon, and self-adhesive velcro tabs. Fold the craft foam and secure with duct tape. Add the velcro tabs, and poke small holes to thread the ribbon handle. They are a bit addicting to make, and you may want to make them in several different colors… not that I did that, or anything… *ahem*

As soon as Clara spotted these mini crayon wallets, she could not wait to get her hands on one of her own!!

They would make lovely party favors, and the kiddos may want to decorate them with foam stickers too!

Clara thinks they are the perfect size for on-the-go fun!!

Have fun!!

  3. Dear Valerie,

  4. Oh, I love this one! I need the new-sew projects!

  5. Very cool! These would be handy for keeping in my purse for those…moments…with toddler boys!

  6. Adorable. I think they’d make great party favors!

  7. Really cool idea!

  8. They look like they would be just big enough for sticky note pads from the dollar store. Absolutely adorable. Sure to beat the well work crayon boxes from restaurants.

  9. Oh darling, these are just SO in for the Spring season…

  10. Little M is going to flip for these! She loves to collect little things! And these wallets will be the perfect size.

    I’ve been thinking about what I can make as a party favor for my little son’s 4th birthday. So far I came up with homemade crayons and some fun “coloring books” that we put together. (Jonah used the scanner and made copies of some of his favorite toys, and some little body parts, like ears and feet. We put them together in little books.) The crayon wallet will be a perfect addition and they can help me make them. Thanks for the idea. You’re so full of good ones.

  12. How very fun!!!

  13. Brilliant! They would make a great birthday party craft, too, for slightly older kids I think!

  16. Love this! My 3 year old and 1 year old boys tackled this today as our art project..they loved it so much after making some for themselves they had to make one for Daddy to take to work, Grandma, Grandpa, and their aunt and uncle…it has turned into an all day fun fest..lol AND we even made play money to go inside of them since the boys were planning a shopping trip to their kitchen “grocery store” :)

  17. That is adorable. I’ve been wondering what to do with the foam paper I see in the Dollar Store. Great!

  18. I love these! Simple and versatile! I pinned them to my board at http://pinterest.com/pin/14413549/
