Coloring Case DIY

I found the most awesome idea for take-along coloring supplies one day while poking around different blogs.  I’ve been wanting to make something that I could just throw in my purse and pull out when I needed something to occupy a child. 
So when I saw this one, I had to make one for myself.  I couldn’t wait and so I was tearing through all our DVDs trying to find one that would be suitable for this project.  Surprisingly, we didn’t have very many with the little locks on the sides.  Once I found one I got right to work and this is what I came up with.
This idea came from Handmade by Stacy Vaughn.  She has the full tutorial on how to make one of your own.  I think it’s genius because the case protects the crayons or colored pencils, they don’t spill out into your purse, it’s sleek and takes up hardly any room and it also provides a hard surface to color on.  Brilliant!

  1. Such a cooooooooool idea! Now I need to go see if I can find one with a lock on it also!!

    1. If you make one yourself, you may find you have to remove more plastic pieces than what the tutorial tells you. I found some little areas that kept mine from closing correctly so I just used my exacto knife and carved away. The plastic is fairly easy to cut through.


I really really love and appreciate comments, but i hate spam.

Due to the heavy amount of spam comments I've been receiving lately I had to put the word verification up. I know how annoying it can be when you want to leave a comment but I hope you will understand.

Would you be so kind to take the extra step to post your thoughts?
