Summer art camp for Fen has come and gone this year, and one of my favorite things she made was a sort of side project for the kids to work on if they were finished with their main projects. They would make little blank books and fill them with artworks cut from art magazines.

Fen loved doing this and showed me how to make one. We even took a special trip to the bookstore to buy a copy of Art In America, just to cut up.

  1. I like these folded books for printables too because it’s easy one sided printing. I love the idea of marking an art scrapbook! How cool for kids to be aware of current artists!
