crayon monogram art

today I worked on these gifts for the boys teachers.
I had pinned them on pinterest a while back.
I started with a template that I found here. There is a template for every letter.
I just changed the font for the name to one to my liking and printed it out on plain paper.
I bought the frames at Ikea {love that place}.
I started by cutting the crayons.  I scored each crayon with a blade or exacto knife and broke the pieces. Next, I placed the crayons on the the template. I cut all the crayons first before I glued them.
Once all the crayons were cut and dry fitted {for lack of a better word}, I printed the monogram on cardstock and then hot glued each piece and framed it.
super easy, super cute!
I printed this one on a textured piece of cardstock. i really liked the contrast and colors.
I want one for myself now.
I was really happy with how they turned out.
I think their teachers will really like them.
