Adult coloring books are a great way to relax and unwind after a long day, but what do you do with the finished pages besides framing them or leaving them closed up in the coloring books?  You can craft with them, including making this coloring page bookmark from your finished colored designs.  You can see your pretty pages every day, without taking up the space a full framed page needs.

For this project, you only need a finished coloring book page, cardstock, and ribbon.  It’s a great way to use up some scraps, and get your colored pages out of the book where you can enjoy them every day.  I colored this page from my A Case of the Mondays Adult Coloring Book, using colored pencils.

Cut 2 strips from your coloring page, approximately 1.5 x 7″ each.  Cut a strip of coordinating cardstock slightly larger than the coloring page strips.  Glue one coloring page strip to each side of the cardstock leaving a 1/8 to 1/4 inch border.

Punch a hole and tie ribbon through one end to finish the bookmark.  Cut ends of ribbon at an angle, and use a dot of glue to secure ribbon in place if desired.  If your ribbon is a fraying type, a light brush with a flame (like a candle or gas match lighter) will melt the ends and prevent fraying.

Don’t let those beautiful pages sit trapped inside your coloring book, set them free and have some fun making new creations.  Coloring + Reading + Crafting?  Three great hobbies all in the same project! It doesn’t get any more relaxing than that.
