Geometric Heart Card - finished card faceHere is another idea how you can recycle/reuse magazines. You can create your own greeting card, and leave the inside of the card blank. This is a thoughtful handmade card that is perfect as a thank you card, for teacher appreciation week, just a hello, happy birthday, it essentially can be used for any occasion!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • scissors
  • magazines
  • ruler
  • glue stick
  • scrapbook paper
  • pen

Steps:

  1. I cut my white paper to measure 8.5" x 5.5" and then I folded it in half to create a landscape style card.
  2. Geometric Heart Card - cut white paper to size and fold in landscape mode
     
  3. For the focal point of the card, I wanted a geometric heart, where the heart is edgy. I used a heart paper punch then went along the edges with scissors to create straight lines.
  4. Geometric Heart Card - punch out main heart shape
     
    Geometric Heart Card - use scissors to trim
     
    Geometric Heart Card - trim to make a more straight edged heart shape
     
    Geometric Heart Card - trimmed heart shape
     
  5. Cut random shapes, sizes, colors, and (you can do patterns too if you'd like) from magazines.
  6. Geometric Heart Card - magazine

  7. The heart will be in the center of the card and puzzle together your masterpiece with the cut out triangle shapes, then glue down.
  8. Geometric Heart Card - place and glue heart in center, begin adding the triangle shapes
     
    Geometric Heart Card - more placing trinagles
     
    Geometric Heart Card - continue laying pieces like a puzzle
     
    Geometric Heart Card - glue triangles in place
     
  9. Optional - As you get to more complex areas, I found it easier to use a traceable piece of paper and create a template to cut the piece out.
  10. Geometric Heart Card - as areas to fill get more complex make a template by tracing the empty space
     
    Geometric Heart Card - use template to cut colored paper
     
  11. Repeat until you filled the entire white area. You can leave the heart glued down or not (without makes you visualize what the master piece should be, but I liked the heart glued down so that is the option I went with.)
  12. Geometric Heart Card - now you can glue the heart shape down or leave blank
