Share beautiful colouring pages and super easy mail art

The popularity of adult colouring-in books seems to have exploded over the past six months. Colouring books with the most beautiful intricate images are now available everywhere-and I thought wouldn’t it be lovely to share the pages in an easy mail art swap.

In this simple swap you will be making a homemade envelope from a page you coloured AND choosing three blank colouring pages to send to your partner.


  1. You will have one partner in this swap.

  2. You will need to collect a total of 4 adult colouring pages. Pages can be found online and printed OR trimmed neatly from your own book OR neatly photocopied.

  3. Colour only 1 page. You can use your choice of medium here-pencil, crayon, sharpie, watercolour, even a little glitter if you like. Just make sure you take care and work neatly.

  4. Use the page you have coloured to make a simple handmade envelope.

  5. Enclose the other three pages inside the handmade envelope with a short note.

  6. Send on time.

  7. Rate your partner.

The finer details:

  • Don't forget to include the swap name and your user name.

  • The note need only be short-a few lines of greeting, and can be on note paper or a note card-it is your choice.

  • This swap is senders choice-but it would be nice to check your partner’s profile for likes and dislikes-you may be able to find pages that they will adore and there may be special colours they particularly like/dislike.

  • No children’s pages. This means no cartoons, no Disney etc. The pages should be sophisticated and intricate. Pages should be approximately A4 or equivalent (give or take an inch or so).

  • Please clip the pages neatly, and fold carefully.

  • Not sure how to make an envelope this link may help.

  • Please rate your partners ASAP and include a comment with some feedback.

If you receive a handmade envelope (made out of a colouring page) and 3 un-coloured pages you must rate a 5-of course hearts are up to you.

Allow a reasonable amount of time for international postage-but communicate with me (the host) or your partner if there are any problems.

Happy swapping everyone :)

Do Not Google "Adult Coloring Pages" - My poor Crayola's will never be the same. O_o

Lol lol @Paige1900 yes I debated weather 'adult' needed to be clarified in the description-but figured we were all well mannered, respectable people here-I see we are not :) yes you may want to be careful googling 'adult' images or you may find yourself as unduly shocked as Paige here was-and in terms of the swap images let's keep this one nice and clean people don't want to shock the postie;)

I am having some trouble printing pages off the computer - that's probably me tho. The picture is smaller than 8 1/2 x 11 andI am not sure what size A4 is. Could you let me know please. I am off to hunt up a couple more pages - all I can seem to find tonight are kids pages. Chris crispycritter
