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!

So so cute!
Thank you May another great idea I have several coloring books and these ideas are a great idea. I finally told my son I cannot go in a certain store until I finish the coloring books I already have. Most of the coloring book pages are one sided so this project will work well. Will watch thus video one more time.
Love this idea!
Love those! I usually toss the pages, although there are a few I held to because I really like how they turned out. I probably wouldn’t use them for a card front, so these ideas are really helpful.
I love the covered notebook, that’s a great idea. Super cute ideas!
I have used a few of the smaller ones as post cards. A lot of the smaller books are on much thicker paper, which makes them great as post cards, you do have to seal them first, if you are using watercolor.
I’ve had this dilemma, thanks for the ideas.
I love the cute coloring book pages you used. I have not yet bought a coloring book for myself. These look really cute.
very fun- I guess I need to get with my nieces as I gave them all the coloring books I had. But I do have LOTS of stamps that would make a great background to color….
Thats really clever! I haven’t got into the colouring craze – that would steal time from Scrapbooking ???? But great ideas for using the completed pages if you have children or colour yourself.
Awesome way to preserve your childs or your own color book art. Great ideas.
