Welcome to our latest craft project at ColorMonthly! As a reminder, never throw out your coloring pages after you’ve colored them. There are ALL KINDS of fun, exciting craft projects you can do with them.
This week, I got the idea of creating a journal or scrapbook from previously colored pages from this post at TipsForGardeningOnline.com. I loved the idea, and figured you would, too, so I started my own journal.
I used materials I already had at the house, including construction paper to dress up my journal, scissors, a glue stick, and a Beauty and the Beast journal I bought a couple weeks ago at the Disney Store while I was shopping for pj’s to wear to the premier (I did. It was fun!)
I chose to cut up one of my previously colored pages from the Color Your Way to Gratitude coloring book here at ColorMonthly. This book is FREE for all our new Club ColorMonthly distributors when they join, or you can purchase it here.

Get started here.
If you don’t have the Color Your Way to Gratitude journal, you can choose any previously colored page you have, or even mix and match them.
First, I cut the elements out of the page that I wanted to include in the journal.
Then, using the glue stick, I glued them onto different colors of construction paper.
I carefully tore the edges of the construction paper around the coloring page. The easiest way to do this was to use my finger as a guide.
Alternately, you could use pinking shears, or just put the coloring page images directly into your journal or scrapbook. Really, the only limit is your imagination.
I also thought about using some of those pop-up stickers for scrapbooking to make the elements pop off the page, but I didn’t want the journal to get too thick, so I opted for construction paper. I’d love to see what you’ve come up with! Comment below, or post your image on our Facebook page here.
