Hi! I’m Susie from Handy with Scissors. I love using recycled materials for art making and am on a mission to get people to ‘Give junk a chance!”
This project uses recycled cardboard and old artworks, which are two of my favourite art making materials. These bookmarks are simple to make would make a lovely gift for friends and family.
Easy Heart Bookmark Designs – WHAT YOU NEED
- Some recycled cardboard (not too thick)
- An old artwork
- Stick glue
- Hot glue (PVA would also work)
- Some ribbon
Easy Heart Bookmarks – HOW TO MAKE
- Draw three heart shapes on some cardboard, each one smaller than the last.
- Cut them out.
- Trace the heart shapes against your artworks and then cut them out.
- Stick the shapes you have cut from the artworks onto the corresponding cardboard heart.
- Cut a length of ribbon about 30cm long. Stick this to the back of the middle sized heart. I used hot glue but you could try PVA or sticky tape.
- Stick the heart ribbon side down on top the largest heart.
- Finish by sticking down the smallest heart on top.
