Instructions for DIY Magnets with Coloring Pages
This is a super easy coloring book project idea, people! First up, give your coloring book page some life by coloring it however you like.
If you have any little ones at home with you, color with them! This was a great activity to do when my son was home from preschool!.
Once you’ve finished coloring, cut your masterpiece into squares slightly smaller than your blank canvases. I cut mine to be about 2.5″ x 2.5″ to fit nicely on my 3″ canvases.
Next, paint the outer edges and around the front of the mini canvases.
Once the paint has dried, spray the backs of the cut up coloring book page with spray adhesive. Affix the coloring book pages to the fronts of the mini canvases.
For some decorative flair, poke small holes through the fronts of the canvases and add decorative brads through the fronts. Flatten them at the back.
Hot glue magnets to the back of the canvases.
And you’re done! You now have a socially acceptable way to display your coloring book pages on your fridge. 😉
Quick, easy, and fun!
So what do you think of this finished coloring page idea? Will you be turning your adult coloring book pages into magnets?
