Yesterday I talked about coloring practice. One place that can be a lot of fun is in a coloring book – though it is somewhat limited with what mediums will work without major issues. I asked my daughters if I could have a coloring book page from each of them to play around with. After all – what good are those pages if we can’t do something to display them?
There are plenty of things to be done – you can make:
- card fronts
- add to your planner
- cut pieces and use as decorative element in a scrapbook
- Use to wrap a (small) box and gift it
- Make luggage tags
- frame as artwork
And so much more! Options abound – of course this works best if you have a single-sided or only are coloring one side of the page. I have a few super quick ideas to share with you here today in my YouTube video.
I am forever looking for ways to make sure I craft useful things – so when the girls saw these and grabbed them right up (except the gift tag – that I was instructed to use for Becca’s birthday) I was delighted! Bookmarks and notebooks are always favorites in this house.
Not a coloring book enthusiast? Consider that you could stamp and color an image, you could do this with an excess of scrapbooking paper/patterned paper, or you could just look around and see what you do have that needs repurposing or otherwise needs to be put to work. There’s always a way to create or recreate!
