Remember the Designing Moms Downloadable Coloring Book that Tori asked us to participate in? My intern Freya decided to get inspired by the free downloadables and created a mini coloring book that opens up accordion style and can fit into a little one's pocket or mommy's purse. They also make fun little party favors or kid coasters too. I made sure to have Freya write down and photograph the process. Let me know if you have any other fun ideas with the downloadables!

Step 1: Cut down 3.5" x 3.5" neon acrylic/vinyl squares for your cover.

Step 3: Take a thick paper stock or ruler to use as a wall for your paper scoring tool, and line up your outside markers for your page folds.
Step 4: Take some scratch paper or and lay it out on the ground outside for spray mounting.
Step 5: Lay your neon acrylic piece on the scratch paper and spray lightly 1-2 seconds over the acrylic in the center of the piece.
Step 6: Take one of your end pages of the book and place evenly on the acrylic piece.
Step 7: Use your mini squeegee blade to press down and swipe from the center towards the outer edge of your end page to even out the adhesive.
Step 8: Repeat steps 4-6 for the other end of your book
