Free Coloring Page Printable: Cute House

Want a free coloring page? Better question: who doesn’t want a free coloring page?

This is my first attempt at a coloring book page. I’m honestly really happy with it. For some reason I’m just not a fan of all the teeny-tiny spaces in adult coloring books. They hurt my hand. I guess I must color intensely haha. That’s true because sometimes I forget to breathe while coloring. 😀

Keeping with September’s theme of Home, this is a cute house coloring page. He is happy to be here and ready for you to move in.

Click the picture above to view the full-size coloring page. Just right-click save the image. It is:

  • Huge: 2400 px X 3000 px
  • 8″ x 10″ at 300 DPI
  • Going to print beautifully for you 🙂

Click here for a .PDF file of the same image, if you prefer. You can resize it to fit any paper you have handy. I think this would be awesome on card stock. Watercolor paper would be especially nifty if your printer can handle it.

Or pin this page for later. Everyone has a coloring page board, right? Right?

Coloring not your thing?

But like, that’s a pretty cute house still. So I put him on t-shirts and stickers and even duvet covers. Go check out my RedBubble shop to see.

Are you going to color this?

DIY Mini Journal

DIY Mini Journal from One Sheet of Paper

Yup. It is possible to make a DIY mini journal from just one single sheet of paper. I’m trying to whittle away every last excuse you have for not starting some type of journaling. 🙂

These tiny booklets are versatile little things. They are great for recording your day, either in words or pictures. A seven day week fits inside perfectly, with room for a front or back cover. You can even print your digital work on them beforehand, then fold them into small zines or brochures. Wouldn’t that be an adorable freebie for your clients or customers? I would be stoked on 8 little pages from my favorite artist.

DIY Mini Journal Supplies

  • One sheet of paper, any size or type.
  • Scissors or a craft knife
  • Ruler if you’re using a knife
  • Optional glue stick, adhesive roller, or tape if you want to seal the pages
  • Optional deco like washi tape, stickers, labels etc.

Keep in mind that this is not perfect bookbinding. The paper will get slightly distorted from folding. You can trim the edges when you’re done. Or you can embrace the mild chaos. It’s up to you.

Thicker papers will show distortion a lot more. You can fudge the pages around in the last step to get them to lie better. Just keep that in mind if you decide to print on thicker papers.

Step One

Fold the paper short ways. Hamburger style. Unfold and recrease in the opposite direction, like origami. Unfold.

Step Four

Fold the paper short ways, hamburger style, again. There will be a crease down the center. Starting at the creased edge of your hamburger, cut to the middle of the center crease. This partial cut allows you to make the book. Unfold.

Step Five

Fold the paper long ways, hotdog style, again. Push the ends towards each other. The paper will start to buckle up. Finesse the pages in to a book as show.

Boom. You can stop here if you like and get to filling in your new journal. You can stick the open side together to form more solid pages. Or you can hide secret drawings between them. *wiggly fingers*

Are you making one of these? I would love to see it. Tag me @ceiltastic on Instagram and Twitter, or post to the Celia Agnes Facebook page.
