Transcript:How to Make a Homemade Fall Coloring BookHi, I'm Scott for About.com. Today I'm going to show you how to make a fall themed coloring book.
Supplies for Making Homemade Fall Coloring BookTo get started, you'll need:
- a printerwhite printer papercolored construction paper ( 2 pieces) or a plastic report cover
- a hole puncher
- hole-punch reinforcement stickers (optional)
- box of crayons
- Three small cuts of string or ribbon
How to Make a Homemade Fall Coloring BookTo begin, go to Familycrafts.About.com to find a wide selection of fall coloring book pages. Select the pages you want. Save them to your computer then print them out. You can color the pages before or after binding them into your book.
Color the printouts with crayons, colored pencils or markers. I colored my pages first before assembling them together in a book. This way, I can keep adding new fall theme coloring pages to the book even after I assemble it. To assemble this way, you can use a plastic report cover. Take the completed coloring book pages and put them in order. Makes sure the sides of the pages are aligned. Insert all the pages into the plastic cover, close then slide everything into the hard plastic clip. Now you can keep adding new pages to your fall coloring book.
If you want a more permanent coloring book assembly, use a hole punch and two cover sheets. First, take two sheets of colored construction paper. Then, using a crayon or marker, write the title of the coloring book. Take the two cover sheets and use the hole puncher on them. Take 2 to 3 coloring book pages at a time and punch holes into them. Make sure the pages are all aligned properly and that the holes are created in the same position on each page. As an option, you can put hole-punch reinforcement stickers onto the holes of the cover pages for protection.
Next, align the coloring book pages together and put them in between the two cover sheets being careful to align all the holes together. Take the small pieces of string or ribbon and insert into each hole and tie together for the bindings. Make sure you leave enough slack in the binding ties so that you can easily open up your coloring book after all the bindings are tied.
