How to make a coloring book

This is a great little project that you can do with your son or daughter or make as a fun gift!

Here is what you will need:

Computer paper
Scrapbook paper
thick ribbon (mine had adhesive on the back which helped)

1.) Print out some FREE coloring pages from the Internet... just google FREE COLORING PAGES and you will get some many sites you wont know what to do with them! Or you can click here to find out how to change your photo into coloring pages.

2.) Cut your scrapbook paper so that it is a bit wider and taller than your coloring pages. Make a front and a back for your book.
3.) Decide the order of your pages and place between the front and the back. Staple your pages together, making sure to get all of the pages.
4.) Adhere your ribbon over the edge of the book to cover up the staples.
5.) Score the front cover so that you can easily open it to color!
What a great gift to give a little boy or girl! It would be fun paired with a crayon or marker roll!
