Upcycled Crafts: Collage Valentine’s Day Cards

February 8, 2014 at 3:50 pm Leave a comment

Hello everyone! We decided to go ahead and celebrate Valentine’s Day early at our monthly craft night, the first Thursday of every month. We never know what we’re going to get in a donation, so we had lots of fun supplies on hand to decorate a unique Valentine’s Day card. Some of our supplies were: damaged children’s books, plastic bags, gift bags, Due Date slips and their envelopes, and much more! Take a look at what our particpants made and see if you find any inspiration.

Date Due slip on the outside of this card, and sweet and funny message on the inside.



This participant incorporated a 2013 bamboo scroll calendar in the card on the left, along with a date due slip on the right.



Paint samples and a heart from a plastic bag are highlights on this card.



Another mixed media card featuring plastic bags, maps and children’s book cut outs.


And last but not least, a lovely card with a ribbon and small charm attached to the front of it. We are so lucky to have such talented crafters! Thanks everyone.
