How to make art from cardboard
So sorry for the awful pics. The natural lighting in my house is just horrible.
This same year I made a cardboard Valentine for my son's teacher. It was a single square of cardboard and had a picture of a Victorian woman on it.
Brown paper grocery bag
Cereal box cardboard for stencil
Card stock (optional for behind photo)
To start, find a good sturdy piece of cardboard that has the zig zag (that's what I call it) center.
Start peeling away one side of the smooth covering. You can take as little or as much as you'd like. The above example has most of the covering peeled off and the one I made while creating this tutorial I left more of the smooth covering on.
Set the cardboard piece aside.
Now take a firm piece of cardboard (like from a cereal box). Draw a flower to use as a stencil for your brown paper bag flowers. Cut the flower out.
After you have painted the paper flowers, grab some brads and put 2 flower layers together to make 1 flower.
Now it is time to assemble your creation. With some ribbon and a glue gun arrange the flowers where you would like them and glue them to the base.
Take ribbon and glue to the back to use for hanging on the wall.
Now add your picture!
I would love to see your cardboard projects!
