Back in January I introduced paper art and was asked if I would consider doing a tutorial. This sounded like a good idea; I scaled the project to a smaller version just in time for Valentines giving.
Winter-Fun = Paper Art was a fun project you can use this tutorial to create the sunflower from last month. The only difference is you design on a canvas instead of a plain card like we’re doing here.
If you scrap book or make cards then you probably have most of the supplies around the house, if not you can always improvise or make a trip to the craft store.
- Tacky Glue – Dries clear -what a blessing!
- String, can be any kind, I used packing string; yarn would also work
- Scrapbook paper
- Blank card and envelope
Creating a Design
Lightly draw your design on the card using a pencil. I went with a heart because Valentines is just around the corner. Once the design is established outline it with the glue and then attach your string and let it dry.
Cut your pretty paper into small pieces. They can be any shape you prefer. Add each piece to the card with glue one at a time until the card is completely covered. This can be time consuming so you might want to sit down while you’re creating.
Once the card is finished let it air dry lying flat open.
The fun part of this project is to pick the person who’s going to receive your hand made card. My husband was the receiver of this card and he loved it.
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
