I have a daughter who loves to color (she take after her mother).  I found an adult (more difficult than a child’s) coloring book for her birthday.  Then I came across this on pintrest, (http://stacyvaughnblog.blogspot.ca/2012/04/dvd-coloring-case.html) and when she pinned it off my board, I just knew I had to create one to go with her coloring book for her birthday, and since all the things in this kit are either in my recycle bin or my material stash or hidden somewhere else in the house, this was an inexpensive addition to her birthday.  I think I will get new color pencils for it though.  She doesn’t really want my old ones, plus, I’m not so sure I want to give them up.  Here we go.

Step 1:

A used DVD case, (you know you have at least one in that DVD tower, if you just look)
2 complimentary scraps of material (check you material stash or a friend’s stash)
1 sheet of 8.5” x 11” scrapbook paper (raided the scrapbook paper box)
Craft knife
Chip board (I used a fun fruits box from my recycle bin)
Terrifically Tacky tape (TT tape)(or spray adhesive, or glue if you don’t have anything else)
Some pencils (for spacing purposes)
10 sheets of 7.5” x 5” white paper (for drawing purposes)
Tape measure
It was hard. Lol
WOW I love it, it is really cool and great if you love to draw and go out... it fits in my purse.. thank you for sharing... I absolutely love it? i also added some lace to the inside. it makes it really pretty
I love this idea!!
Wow! This is so creative!
This is the best idea I have seen on instructables so far! Also, it looks like it won't be too difficult to make each kid their own personalized <a href="http://www.spiceboxbooks.com/products/1/adult-art-kits/" rel="nofollow">art kits</a> to take with us on vacation. Long car trips are the perfect opportunity to have an excuse to make something cute like this. Thanks for all the instructions, great job!
So cool and convenient. I'm chomping at the bit to make one of these now! Great idea!
Very clever
Very cool!
this is a GREAT idea ! I keep drawing supplies in each of my vehicles, a wire bound book of index cards and mechanical pencil at the minimum but I could clip this to the sunvisor and not have to search the glove box !
Thank you!
