Designer Crayons for gifts

This is a creative and nice gift that is easy to make and every kid will love it.
I like to make mine to reflect the Holiday or event that I'm giving it for like
Christmas they will have a Christmas theme,
Valentines will be all about Valentines,
Easter will be in the Easter Theme and so on.

Materials you'll need:

all of your broken crayons you just don't use anymore

a micro wave able design pan

wax paper

Gift Box or container that you choose to give your gift in.

Step One:  break your crayons up into small pieces and then add the colors that you 
                 want into the design trays.( For Christmas I like to use a Gingerbread soft
                 tray, so your crayons will look like Gingerbreads.)

Step Two:  Take your tray and place it in the Micro wave and set it for 1 minute then 
                  check and you can stir it with a skewer or a tooth pick to distribute the heat
                  evenly and put back in the micro wave at 15 seconds and repeat until the 
                  crayon is completely melted, then remove from the micro wave and let the
                  crayons cool and then turn over pan and pop out.

Step Three:  Now you get to put them into a container of your choice and give as a 
                     unique gift mad by you from you to that very special person.
