    With Crayola Scissors, cut plastic straws into short sections and form beads around them. Use your fingers to shape jewelry pieces, or use cookie cutters or candy molds. Make bases for your original jewelry designs, such as leaves, suns, or stars. The Naturals colors are great for twigs, bark, and autumn leaves. To make rose petals, stick small, flattened circles together in layers.

    Insects can inspire you, too. Roll a coil into a spiral and it looks like snail. Stack different colored shapes on top of each other to make ladybugs and caterpillars. Curl pieces of small-gauge wire to look like insect antennae. The possibilities are endless!
