Gift Boxes to Decorate and Make: Christmas illustrated by Sarah Walsh

Children absolutely love to color and teens and adults are now getting into the relaxing coloring act with a plethora of sophisticated coloring books available. With Christmas fast approaching and colder days when staying inside is more the plan, children need activities that engage their interest and satisfy.

So now there is a "coloring book" that serves as a project to create one's own boxes in which to place those treasured Christmas gifts. The book  is 11" by 10" and has 50 pages to color and fold into boxes with an intended audience of ages 8 to 12. The book is a great resource for creating 24 gift boxes and there are lovely "gold foil" gifting stickers to use, also.

Each box will have beautifully intricate pictures to color on the inside and outside providing an opportunity to really embellish the box with beautiful colors of one's choice making it uniquely theirs as a gift to the recipient. The little boxes can also  be kept so the child can keep his or her own treasures in a beautifully individualized box.

At $15.99 (imprint retail pricing) this book will provide 24 boxes for "gift wrapping" at about $.66 each. Current Amazon pricing would make the little boxes about $.50 each.

About the book/product: Each page of this brilliant book can be colored and made into a box! Simply tear out and fold to create a gift box perfect for storing all kinds of Christmas treats. The boxes are beautifully decorated with festive black-and-white designs, which you can color in with pens or pencils to make sure your gifts are extra special this Christmas.
