In the paper quilt shown here we also created circular coffee filter art using the same materials and techniques. Find directions for these in the Smart Art Lesson for Coffee Filter Art shown here. Finished paper squares and circles were laid out onto a piece of white mural paper, ready to be mounted with simple white glue. This simple paper craft shows off the beautiful brilliance of color. Isn't it wonderful eye candy?

I love watching simple paper towels come to life with Colorations® Liquid Watercolor. To create this "eye popping" paper quilt, we filled bingo bottles with Colorations® Liquid Watercolor and dabbed the color onto folded paper towel squares. These detailed patterns were created by school aged children, but younger children will create more free-form patterns with equally beautifully results. For best results use "2-ply" paper towels (better quality versions) since they soak up more color than "1-ply" paper towels and give your artwork a richer result.


  1. Various designs and color combination could be used when creating a paper towel quilt. Children could show their own unique ideas and develop their creative skills further. Through this, they could learn to make use of their available resources to help save our environment. Reducing amount of waste could be made by shredding San Antonio papers to make them more useful again as an example.

  2. Another great choice for adolescent kids is ringspun microcotton which has a luxurious vibe and is more retentive than normal cotton towels, making the assignment of drying yourself that a lot washcloths
