Design Originals, an imprint of Fox Chapel, has published a variety of holiday themed activity books for all ages. The featured image for this article, Christmas Papercrafting: Holiday Cards, Gift Tags, and More!, is designed a bit more for adult crafters, but I’ll also be discussing two coloring books, Santa’s Kitty Helpers and Cute Christmas. This multi-book feature is designed to help you find some perfect activity books for the people on your holiday shopping list.
Christmas Papercrafting includes some brief and easy to follow descriptions for how to make some lovely papercrafts that you can share throughout the season. These crafts include envelopes, gift tags, bookmarks, mini cards, magnets, and frameable wall art. The back of the book is then full of all the paper you will need to complete the crafts on perforated paper. The designs are both cute and artsy and will add a beautiful touch to your holiday gift giving.
Cute Christmas Holiday Coloring Book by Jenny Newland and William Vanderdasson is full of adorable animals in holiday scenes that will add a little bit of cute to the often very stressful holidays. These images are perfect to either destress with as an adult or to give kids something fun to do while they are spending time at home on holiday break. The back of each picture has a small quote and a few lines to write on that you could use to write a little message to whomever you are going to be giving the picture to.
Kayomi Harai’s Santa’s Kitty Helpers Holiday Coloring Book focuses on cute kittens enjoying some holiday time. Each of the pictures includes at least one little fluffy kitten. They sometimes are wearing outfits and sometimes they are just in their natural kitten state. Each picture is ideal for cat lovers and anyone who needs a little furry feline in their day. Much like the previously mentioned coloring book each page has a little quote and some lines on the back.
