3-D Shadowbox Art from a Coloring Book!

Do your kids have a favorite coloring book they don't want to part with? A special page they colored just for you? It doesn't have to sit in a file somewhere, it can become 3-D art for your wall! With a few scraps from your craft supplies, a craft knife, sticky dots, and a deep frame, you can have a beautiful piece in no time at all.

This is a scene from Cinderella. The dress, mice and birds were cut from the coloring book page. A sheet of scrapbook paper is the background, and ribbon, paper blossoms, seed beads, and a needle complete the 3-D look. Position sticky dots to raise the parts you want raised. It's really quite simple to make a picture a treasure to keep! It's very inexpensive, completely unique, and your child will love seeing their artwork "come to life."

This one was made by my mom, who always has amazing ideas :)
