Press Out and Color: Butterflies - Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

This book of beautiful butterflies is full of press-out designs intricately decorated with foil and perfect for all ages to color in. Featuring ten unique designs, the press-out pieces can be slotted together to create bright and cheerful ornaments. These gorgeous butterflies are perfect to hang around the home and add sparkle to any setting.

My Review:

Illustrator Zoe Ingram has designed ten butterfly species to color and display.  Press Out and Color: Butterflies is a spiral bound book with a hardback cover and features ten species of butterflies.  The intricate designs are foil and it's up to you to color the butterflies in with your colors of choice.  I found that it's best to use gel pens because colored pencils don't show up very well and markers smear.  You will want to make sure one area is dry before going to the next or there is the possibility of smearing.  Some of the butterfly species includes are Painted Lady, Blue Morpho, Monarch, and Red Admiral.  There are small holes in each butterfly so you can hang your creations after you've colored them and pressed them out of the book.  

My screened-in back porch is lined with handmade beading and a butterfly charm at the bottom of each.  Once I am done coloring all the butterflies in this book, I am going to hang them up in the back porch to go with the rest of my butterfly theme.

Win It!

One person will win Press Out and Color: Butterflies.

I have a new puppy and a large fenced in backyard. I love to sit on my deck and color while she plays in the yard. It gives us both the freedom to do what we love and when she tires, she comes and lays beside me while I color. It's heaven for me! ❤
