Flower Collage Cards

Instructor: Jennifer Penick

Here is an easy collage project that you can create from home. It’s a project that everyone can participate in (adults and kids alike) and it doesn’t take much in the way of supplies, skills, or space. Consider sending the cards that you make to connect with friends and family. You get to enjoy a creative activity, and they get a hand-made gift.

What you will need:
• Magazine (or other paper: old cards, wrapping paper, tissue paper, etc.)
• Scissors
• Glue

1. Scrounge up cards
You can collage over old cards, or make simple cards from paper trimmed to fit any envelopes that you have on hand. If you have some blank cards, all the better.

2. Cut colors from magazine
Cut several colorful sections from magazines. You don’t need a lot of big areas of color, just a nice selection of different colors and textures.

3. Take inspiration
Find some images of flowers on the internet and use them as a springboard for your own. I recommend starting with simple shapes.

4. Make your own
Cut out the parts of your flower, adding stem, leaves, and any other embellishments that strike your fancy. Use a glue stick (or any kind of liquid glue) to glue all of the parts down.

Now send it to someone you miss and make their day! And share photos of your cards with us! Tag us @arlingtonartscenter using the hashtag #aacartonline.
