It's almost Valentines Day so I decided to try out a simple mosaic technique that I saw a while back. This can be a very kid friendly activity. In fact my little guy is still working on his :) You can find Libby's full tutorial here. For other tutorials and inspiration check out Splitcoaststampers.
What you're going to need:
Paper in red, pink, white, or your sweetie's favorite colors
Glue or Mod Podge
Paint brush (if you are using glue or #modpodge, especially on larger surfaces)
Stamps or hand drawn images
1. Cut out or punch some hearts from card stock or a stiff paper (cereal boxes or tissue boxes work great for this).
2. Cut, or tear for a shabby chic look, your mosaic paper into 1/4 - 1/2 inch strips
3. Cut, or tear, your strips into squares. I decided to cut up some book pages and sheet music too :)
7. Now use that imagination and some embellishments and make a card, some garland, etc.
Here's a close up of the mosaic. The little hearts were made with a paper punch and then I inked up the edges.
