Scratch and Create Books for Creative Fun

Do you remember scratch and create books from when you were younger? I used to love making all sorts of pictures this way but I haven't seen any new books or kits for this art in years. I recently learned about a new set of books that I wanted to share with you. I received products for this post. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Scratch and Create Books for Creative Fun

Scratch and Create Books

Scratch and create books allow the artist to scratch off a metallic coating to reveal a design underneath. Not only is the process of scratching very relaxing, but it's fun to see the design unfold underneath.

Both of these postcard kits come fully stocked with one stylus, an exclusively designed tool to remove the silver color ink coating, three different lettering stencil sets, a set of ornaments, and 16 scratch sheets.

My thoughts

These are such gorgeous books that would make a beautiful gift for anyone on your gift list this year. Or, if you're artistic yourself they are a great way to relax in a different way than coloring. When you're done scratching the design underneath, you could easily display the postcard or artwork in a picture frame or on a small easel. Each book comes with its own stylus to use.

These are gorgeous high quality books that you won't want to share with the kids. I love that there are finally scratch and create books for adults.
