Hello!  And, welcome to the first Made for You Monday Linky Party here on Clip with Purpose.   I’m hoping several bloggers will share some great crafts for kids this week and that each week there will be more and more people participating!  Today, I’m sharing a quick tutorial on making crayon wallets.  These can be made out of felt, fleece, or even fabric (if you feel like sewing…I did not).

Step 1: Place the felt vertically, like a piece of paper.  On the bottom third of the felt (bottom 4″), place three strips of hot glue, evenly spaced.

Step 2:  Fold the felt up and run your finger over the glued section.  Now you’ll have 2 pockets, each 4 inches deep and about 4.5″ across.  One pocket will be used for crayons, the other for paper.  Fold the top third of the felt down to create flap.  You can decorate the flap if you wish.

Step 3:  Flip your wallet over and glue a 24″ length of ribbon across the center of the wallet.  Make sure it’s centered.

Then, you just flip your wallet over, fold it in half and tie the ribbon together to close.  Decorate the front if you want.

Here’s how to link up:

    Great idea! I started the other blog and have a post ready to link up but I don’t see the linky to do it in. Also, do you want the link back to your home page or can we put a link to this post or the Made for You Monday link?
