MAKING VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS WITH RECYCLED MATERIALS
Creating a collage
Layer papers and cutouts from magazines, catalogues, and cardboard products from your recycling bin. Play around with their placement before gluing them down. Add words and hand-written elements as finishing touches. You can also add stickers and doilies if you have them.
Gluing tip: Always have a scrap piece of paper under where you are gluing to protect your table. Then just fold the scrap paper over before placing the next piece of art down for a new nonsticky surface to work on.
