Wondering what to do with coloring book pages? Turn them into this fabulous jar gift!

This beautiful project features a terrarium-themed coloring page adhered to the front of a jar filled with colored pencils. Use a laminator or take your completed coloring page to your local office store to laminate it for you. This will make the coloring page embellishment more durable.

This is a great gift paired with a new coloring book. It's also an effective way to store your own colored pencils at home!

Include the watercolor brush with the jar for easy access. You can even carve out your own little coloring corner and keep all your coloring books and this jar gift in one place.
