Tutorial: St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Mini Book Cover

Happy St. Patrick's Day! As you know, I'm always finding ways to turn trash to treasure and this rainbow made from bathtub crayons is just one of them:

St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Mini Book Cover

I've been saving the bathtub crayon cases for some sort of rainbow project and since it's St. Patrick's Day, there's no better time than now. The naked mini book is a whole 'nother story. I've had that for about five years (*cringe*), but as I've said before, I'm all about using up my stash this year.

Okay...let's get started!


mini book
bathtub crayon cases (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
Glue Dots® (Lines, XL, Mini)
ribbon (printed, plain)

1. Pop out the white "push-up" piece for each bathtub crayon case. Wash and dry the cases.

2. Place a strip of Glue Lines® in the center of the mini book cover and adhere the printed ribbon to it.

3. Adhere a Glue Line® to the red bathtub crayon case and attach to the cover. Repeat for the rest of the crayon cases. 

4. Add another strip of Glue Lines® across the rainbow to wrap and secure the ribbon. Set aside.

5. Make a knot at the end of the plain ribbon.

6. Place the knot in the center of an XL Glue Dot®. Wrap and fold the rest of the ribbon around it to make a ribbon flower.

7. Fold the ribbon end underneath and use another XL Glue Dot® to attach it to the center of the ribbon-wrapped bathtub crayon rainbow.

8. Tie floss through a button, make a bow and use Mini Glue Dots® to attach it to the ribbon flower.

All that's left to do is fill up the mini book with St. Patrick's Day memories! Hope you have a lucky day! ~Danielle
