Coloring Book Pages Box and Bags
In the Designer's Words: "I used the Leisure Arts Art of Coloring Animals book and coloured 3 pages: 1 - I used Watercolour Pencils, 2 - I used really wet Watercolour Paints and 3 - I used Distress Markers. I then cut the pages using a variety of dies, to form 3 different boxes and bags. I cut the Therm O Web Toner Sheets from a Bow Die and used the Navy Deco Foil to make the die shiny! This project can be made using any Colouring Sheets and your choice of dies! It's a great way to use your colouring sheets and feature them in a project!"
Adult coloring book pages are sweeping the DIY craft world with their stunning designs and moments of zen. Shading in coloring sheets can be a relaxing and fun activity, but many crafters are at a loss as to what to do with these stunning designs once they have completed their pages. It is not like you can send them home to mom and dad to hang on the fridge, after all. That is why this how to make a box idea is brilliant. Learn how to transform your coloring book pages into DIY boxes and homemade gift bags when you make the Coloring Book Pages Box and Bags.

This is worth a try! It's pretty easy and cheap. I can use my daughter's coloring pages for this project.

Note where your coloring books are FROM! MADE! There are also coloring pages - both simple and complex - to be found online. Just print and color! Try Crayola's page, and look up crayola's "free-coloring-pages" and click "adult coloring pages" and there are two, the one I lokked at called "intricate-designs-coloring-pages". There are others as well, all over the web. Print on half-way decent paper and you're set! Most, if not all, paper can be found Made In Usa as well. We can have fun with a clean conscience!
