I made these the other day for my kids ages 3, 5 and 7, and they have loved them. They are the perfect travel case for crayons. I found the directions at Skip to my Lou . I made a few modifications including adding a Velcro closure instead of a ribbon. I wanted my kids who don't know how to tie a bow yet to still be able to open and close it easily. It holds 16 crayons and is approx 5" tall. I made one for my nephew yesterday and added his name on the outside. What a great gift for all those little artists.
