Upcycled Valentine Cards with Magazines

Thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day we thought we’d have fun with some heart shapes & do some recycling along the way.

I found some white card & cut out a selection of heart shapes, & then cut a smaller heart from the centre to create a frame.

Minnie loves flicking through old magazines cutting out the things that catch her eye. She often makes collages with her cutouts, but for this activity, we used them for something new.

Minnie started by flicking through a Boden catalogue & cut out the patterns she liked. We glued the white heart frames over her chosen pattern & then carefully trimmed away the excess paper to create a beautiful patterned heart.

We made several of these (as you can see) & then set to work adding them to folded cardstock to make Valentine cards ready to send to special people on 24th February!
