3 THINGS TO DO WITH A COLORING PAGE OR OTHER ARTWORK

Do you like to color and have accumulated extra coloring page art you need to find a use for? Here are three ideas for how you can repurpose your artwork with things you probably have around the house. Watch the video below for details on how to make all three!

ORIGAMI ENVELOPES

Cut your coloring page into a square, then follow easy steps to fold it into a beautiful envelope.

CANDLE HOLDER

Glue your coloring page to the outside of a jar, or cut it up and glue small pieces onto the jar for a mosaic effect. Then let the candlelight shine through. 

PENCIL HOLDER

Wrap an empty can with your artwork for a new desktop holder for your art supplies.

 

Take a photo of your coloring page project and tag it with #YDLsummerchallenge or @ypsilibraryteens. We might ask you for permission to repost it on our teen Instagram account!

FRAME YOUR ART

Target or Meijer both sell affordable frames. Buy one and frame your work, like this one created by my mom that I have on the wall of my office.

MAKE A DIGITAL ALBUM

Create a free Shutterfly account and upload photos of your art like I do with mandala drawings. You can share albums digitally, or layout the photos in a digital album they will print for you.
