3 Step DIY: Coloring Book Storage

Hello Everyone!

When I recently joined the Buttons Galore & More design team, we were allowed to pick a certain number of products to use in our own projects. Well, I ran across these adorable crayon buttons and just knew I had to create a project with them. I actually ended up getting 3 packs of the buttons because I had so many project ideas!

Today I will be showing you one of those ideas which involve giving life to a coloring book page and creating storage for all your coloring books. The best thing about this project is that it’s only 3 steps and can really be customized to fit your own design taste.

So, if you want to learn how to make your own coloring book storage, then keep reading below!

Wooden Crate
Wooden Letters
Xyron Teresa Collins Mega Runner
Buttons Galore & More: Crayons - 4042
Coloring Book Page (already colored)
DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint: Snow (Titanium) White
Foam Brush
Craft Knife (not pictured)
Scissors (not pictured)
Hot Glue Gun (not pictured)

Step 1: Paint your wooden crate and wooden letters white. Then set them aside to dry.

Step 2: Grab your wooden letters and apply some adhesive to the front of the letters using Xyron's Teresa Collins Mega Runner. Then place those letters on the back of your coloring book page. Finally, using a craft knife, cut out/around each letter. By doing this, your wooden letters will now be covered with the coloring book page.

Keep repeating this step until all your wooden letters are covered.

Step 3: Grab you Crayon buttons and cut off the shank part on the back. Then hot glue all your wooden letters and buttons into place.

Once all your letters and buttons have been glued into place, you’re ready to store your coloring books!

For a 3 Step DIY, this project turned out really cute!

Now, even though my wooden crate is for coloring books, you could easily change the letters to fit your storage needs. For example, your wooden crate could say ‘’coloring supplies’’ or ‘’coloring tools’’. No matter what phrase you choose, just make sure that your wooden letters are small enough to fit on the front of your wooden crate.

Finally, if you are wondering why I used Xyron adhesive instead of a decoupage glue in step 2, it's simply because the Xyron adhesive does not affect the medium that you used on your coloring book page. For example, if you were to of used a decoupage glue in this situation, then the glue might have smeared any ink or watercolor you might have used on your coloring book page. So, in this case, I feel that Xyron's products and coloring book pages are definitely a perfect match!

So, what do you think? Do you like this coloring book storage project?
