  • Waxed Paper
  • Bits of leftover crayons
  • Warm iron in the hands of an adult
  • Scissors
  • Fishing wire
  1. Place a piece of wax paper over egg pattern. Sprinkle crayon shavings (sparingly!) on wax paper following the design on the download.
  2. Place another piece of wax paper on top of shavings and a blank sheet of paper or a cloth over that. Gently press down with a warm iron. Crayon will melt quickly.
  3. Staple wax paper outside of the design area and under the waxed paper and cut out.
