DIY Paint by Numbers

Presents. Who doesn't love them? I love giving, and receiving gifts. I have a lot of nieces and nephews so there is always a birthday around the corner. Last week such an occasion arose, and I decided to go the creative route.

I made a "paint by numbers" set for her. All horses, her favorite. One thing is different with my set though, I labeled each crayon (easier clean up than paints) with a number corresponding to the drawing instead of a key. Shes 5, its a little easier, Happy Birthday baby!

First I had to draw it

Then I had to ink the drawing and number the sections

Then I numbered stickers to roll around the crayons (the stickers were meant to label floppy disks!)

The complete package, a clear carrying case with a separate zippered crayon pouch, and the drawings in a pink striped plastic folder.

it took me about 2 hours and $10 Hope you like it!
