Frozen Coloring Book Favors - DIY

DIY: Easy Frozen Themed Coloring Books
October 9, 2014


DIY Elsa and Anna Frozen themed coloring book
DIY: Frozen Coloring book

Supplies:

Plain copy/printer paper
Coloring book pages (download online)
Cardstock
Stapler 

Step 1:

Download and print your coloring pages. I put two images side by side on each page on a Word document (page is Landscape and borders are at 1/4" on all sides).  

Step 2: 

Fold cardstock cover and pages in half.  Staple at two places in fold. (Because of the size I made these, I had to use my long-arm stapler.)  

Here are the optional parts:


Step 3: 

I printed and cut Frozen poster images onto cardstock.  They are sized 2 1/2" x 3 3/4".  I cut snowflakes from Recollections Blue Shimmer paper (sold in 12x12 sheets) which was left over from the Frozen invitations I made for this party.
Each snowflake was cut at 4" using the Cricut Winter Wonderland cartridge snowflake #23 (page 46 & 46).  Settings: Pressure - High, Speed - Medium, Needle - 5).  I didn't bother punching out the tiny holes in the snowflakes' centers because they would be covered up by the pictures.

Step 4: 
Glue the snowflakes to the front of the coloring books and glue the picture on top of the snowflake as shown in the picture.

That's it!  A very simple and budget friendly party favor, which is also a big hit with the kids.  I also purchase small packs of crayons (like the ones they give out in restaurants) to add to the favor bags with the coloring books.  You can get them on Amazon or eBay for very reasonable prices.  

TTFN,
