My name is Nicole and I am the creator of the Original Recycled Rainbow Crayons.
I was the first person on Etsy ever to sell a recycled crayon and have been handcrafting whimsical creatures and unique shapes out of recycled crayons for 10+ years (in the early days of Etsy).
I create colorful Original Rainbow Crayons in 325+ shapes and sizes. I absolutely love working with recycled and repurposed crayons for my creations. Many people do not realize how labor intensive collecting, peeling, and melting thousands of crayons can be! As a mom of two boys, I am always on the look out for new and exciting shapes to add to our collection.
My inspiration to begin creating Recycled Rainbow Crayons came from my experiences as an Elementary Art teacher. During my first year teaching, I was planning a texture unit with kindergarten around the time of Earth Day. I wanted to find a way to teach my enthusiastic, young artists about being eco-friendly.
The first Rainbow Crayon I created was born in a small, wax cup. Despite the horrible smell as the colorful creations baked and the never-ending work of peeling off wrappers and wax paper, It was round and perfect in so many ways. As 28 students gazed up at me with excitement, I knew this idea was going to take off!
325+ Shapes later, I continue to have the opportunity to share these fun and exciting Rainbow Crayons with you. Thank you for your support and for being a part of my journey.
Cant say enough good things about these letter name crayon sets or this seller. She was accommodating, responsive, and quickly delivered my crayon names for a birthday party deadline. Don't hesitate to order in bulk from her! I will definitely be ordering more in the future for my girls.
This is the perfect gift for an upcoming 2 year old birthday! I'll be ordering these for all of our upcoming birthdays from now on!
Everything about this product and shop is beyond perfect! The quality of professionalism, packaging, and product are exceptional! I ordered three custom name boxes for birthday presents and received all three very quickly. Nicole was always quickly responsive with questions from products to invoices. I definitely will be purchasing more products in the future! Seriously such a great gift idea that's not a wasteful or obnoxious toy or something someone will already have...Very practical and fun!
