Make It By Hand: New England Paperscapes and Vintage Coloring & Craft Book Review and Giveaway

There is something about starting with a simple book and being able to create a whole city or town. When I was young I had a book that I could punch out shapes and images, that after colored and assembled, would create a whole cityscape.

As much as fun as I now remember that book was, honestly I had forgotten about it until I received the Make it By Hand Paperscapes and Vintage Coloring Book for review.

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Atria Books. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

I received a copy of Paperscapes New England: 20 Projects to Color, Press Out and Assemble to Create Your Own Unique World and The Vintage Coloring & Craft Book for review.

The first book was the Paperscapes New England: 20 Projects to Color, Press Out and Assemble to Create Your Own Unique World. This is a collection of different buildings to color and assemble. The end result is a personalized town that you created.

Over 30 finely-detailed illustrations that include cozy homes, quaint shops, and lovely churches that are printed on die-cut, high quality stock. From there you can color, press out, fold, and display these three-dimensional works of art together in a paperscape of a charming New England town.

The second book was The Vintage Coloring & Craft Book, which was a book that enables you to turn your vintage patterned creations into decorative and practical DIY projects.

Included in the book are ten delightful vintage style patterns to color in. Also included are instructions for twenty unique craft projects to cut out and create that include greeting cards, party decorations, gift tags, and jam jar labels to name a few!

Each of these books allow total creativity in one package, and each is page is made of solid paper that will allow for crayons, pencils or pens.

If you are looking for a all-in-one books that allow for creativity and expression, these would make great additions to your collections.

    My most favorite toy growing up would probably have to be my very first Bratz Doll! Her name was Chloe and she had long brown hair with green eyes.
