How to print your own coloring pages
I enjoy printable coloring pages even more than coloring books. You don’t have to worry about your color choices. If you aren’t happy with the way the page turned out, you can just print a new copy and color it again! You can also make your own Christmas cards with printable coloring pages. There are instructions further down the page for making your own Christmas cards.
For professional-feeling coloring pages that are fun to color, make sure to use a nicer paper (not whatever cheap feeling paper is in the printer at work). You can see side-by-side companions of the best papers for printables in this post. It focuses on planner printables, but papers that are good for colorful printouts are also good for coloring on.
I use and recommend HP 32# paper for coloring pages. It’s thicker and brighter than “regular” copy paper, which helps keep markers from feathering. The paper also feels smoother, so pencils and crayons glide and color smoothly on it. This paper is also good for cards, but cardstock is sturdier if you want to use it, instead.

For a glittery Christmas fun, color these pages with gel pens. Even if you don’t want to use all your ink coloring the whole page, at least add some sparkly accents! How about adding some twinkle on a snowflake with a silver pen? Check out this post for the best gel pens for coloring, including a great budget pick. The shortversion is that the pens shown below are the best overall and best budget pick:
In my experience, the best budget markers for coloring Crayola Supertips. They’re a bargain and fun for adults and children. The fine tip makes them better than many other markers for coloring details. Because there are dozens of shades, they’re great for colorful Christmas pages.
- Sold as 50/ST.
- Markers have tips that are smooth, not scratchy.
- Fine line markers with a versatile tip that draws thick or thin lines.
Some of the best colored pencils are Prismacolors. Even the more budget lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending. A colorless Prismacolor blending pencil is the perfect tool for the job if you want to start blending colored pencils.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
How to use coloring pages to make your own Christmas cards
It’s easy to print your own Christmas cards with printable coloring pages. You can print four-up (4 to a page) to make post cards. Trim the pages apart with a paper trimmer. This Fiskars paper trimmer is my favorite because it has a guide wire so you can tell exactly where you’re cutting.
Or you can use the “booklet” feature in Acrobat Reader to print fold-over cards. Make sure to select “Binding: left” as shown below. Trim the pages down to size with a paper trimmer and you’re ready to go!
