Introduction: HALLOWEEN COLORING BOOK

When Trick-or-Treaters ring my bell on Halloween, rather than give them more candy, I like to give them a different type of TREAT! A hand made coloring book (Assuming that they are under the age of 10!)

Step 1: Supplies

The supplies are very simple, however, you do need access to a Xerox machine.

Drawing paper (8.5X7)
stack of legal size paper
stapler
staples
pencil
sharpies

Step 2: Drawings

With a pencil draw your images

Step 3: Sharpie

Then go over the pencil lines with sharpie markers to make your image bold.

Step 4: Finished Drawings

All drawings are finished, I made 10

Step 12: End Page

Step 13: Mount Drawings

When all drawings are finished mount them on standard size xerox paper. 

Step 14: Make Copies

make xerox copies on Legal size paper

Step 15: Fold and Staple

Fold pages in half and staple down the spine. Several blank pages at the end of the book provide space for the trick-or-treaters to create their own drawings.

That is beautiful calligraphy, what is the script called or could you do a tutorial of all the letters?

OHHHH That is a hand that I pretty much made up. It is kind of a cross between Italic and Bookhand. I do a lot of calligraphy for I
invitations, envelopes and place cards etc. This hand is very fast and easy for me to do.
And Thank you for noticing!
