Mosaic Love Letter Cards for Kids
Are you looking for a simple and cute Valentine’s Day craft? Do you need a craft that’s great for kids of all ages?
Hi! My name is Leslie. I love making things with kids and I shares lots of easy art and craft ideas over at Pink Stripey Socks. Today I’m visiting this corner of the web to share a happy and sweet paper love mosaic craft. (Thank you Maggy for inviting me to join your 31 Days of Love series!)
Love Letter Cards Here are the materials you’ll need:
- Colorful Sheets of Paper
- Glue stick
- Optional: Strips of star folding paper
How to make your Mosaic Love Letters
Use a pencil to write the word “love” on a colorful sheet of paper.
(Note: I tried printing the word “love” and writing it in script. The finished mosaic looked a lot nicer when I used the printed letters. If you choose to write in script, be sure to spread the letters out a lot. Otherwise it’s hard to distinguish the letters once you glue on the pieces.)
Cut out lots of small, colorful squares.
(Note: I cut strips of star folding paper to quickly create square pieces.)
Wipe a bit of glue along one portion of a letter. Then, glue on the square pieces. Keep repeating this process until the entire word is covered with colorful squares. Once you’re finished, add a border using long strips of paper.
Aren’t the results gorgeous?
