Step 1

What’s in a name? Cut long strips from the Easy Peel Stickable Colouring Roll, then trim into shorter sections to make letters of your name. Then take your strips and stick onto a sheet of paper, making one letter at a time. 

Step 2

Let’s get creative! Cover the page in splishes and splashes of colour with soft and smooth Jumbo Creamy Crayons.

Step 3

When you’re done, carefully peel the adhesive paper strips from the page. You’ll be left with an amazing piece of art to hang on the door of your bedroom!
