How You Can Make Your Own Coloring Page in Canva Easily
Go to canva.com and click on ‘create a design’, then on ‘Custom Size’.
We want a US Letter size page. Canva has a US Letter template but I found out the size is much smaller than it should be, so that’s why I use custom size and enter the size 2550 px by 3300 px. Then click on ‘Create a new design’.
Now we have a blank template we can work with.
The next step is to click on ‘Elements’.
In this tutorial I want to create a coloring page with floral borders. So let’s type in ‘floral’ in the search bar.
Then we click on Graphics as we don’t need Photos.
We want to use free elements only. That’s why we click on the right symbol of the search bar, then scroll down and select ‘Free’ under Price. Not everyone has Canva Pro.
Let’s use the first floral element here.
You can’t see it because it is white.
So, let’s change the color to black.
Then we place it on the bottom left corner.
Let’s duplicate it.
Then place it on the top left corner.
Let’s flip it vertically.
Now duplicate this element.
Place it on the top right corner.
Flip it horizontally.
Let’s duplicate the element on the bottom left corner. Place it on the bottom right corner and flip it horizontally.
What I want to do now is add some floral borders to the left and right side of the page where there are still white spaces.
Let’s duplicate the element on the top left corner.
Then we just place it on the left side of the page in the middle and move and rotate it until it fits.
Just repeat the same step on the other side of the page but here we need to flip the element horizontally.
Now we have a frame for this coloring page.
We want to lock everything so we don’t move anything accidentally. For this, we select everything. Then group it and click on ‘Lock’.
In the next step we are adding a text to our coloring page. Let’s click on ‘Text’. Then select ‘Add a text box’.
Let’s write some text.
Now select the text with your cursor and choose a font you like.
Make the text as big as you want.
You can also drag the corners to enlarge the text.
To center the text, we click on the three dots at the top and select ‘Position’, then click on ‘Middle’ and ‘Center’. Perfect!
I think we should make the text hollow. Select ‘Effects’, then ‘Hollow’.
Let’s add some more elements to the coloring page. Go to Elements and type in what element you are looking for. Let’s type in butterfly and make sure the settings are set to free. Not everyone has Canva Pro. Let’s use this butterfly.
. Place it where you want to have it. Make it smaller and position it properly.
Let’s just duplicate the butterfly we already have.
Place it properly and flip it horizontally.
I think the coloring page is finished now. Finally, we can save our coloring page. Write a title for your design.
Then click on the ‘Share’ button. Then on ‘Download’.
Let’s save it as a PNG first. Click on ‘Download’ and download it to your computer.
Let’s download it as a PDF now. Select ‘PDF print’ which gives us the best quality. Select ‘Flatten PDF’. This is important if you don’t want people to extract single elements from your page. It also ensures that the page will be printed properly. Download it to your computer.
That’s it! You have a coloring page now which you can color in, share, and even sell as we have only used free graphics and fonts. If you have Canva Pro and used Pro elements, there are certain limitations regarding sharing and selling your designs which you can read here.
