Make these super cute DIY Valentine’s Day cards by recycling magazines and catalogs. Just rip out colors from catalogs and magazines and glue them onto paper. Easy!
I made a couple Valentine’s Day card variations, the one above with a collage front and white arrow, and a simple modern version with punched hearts.
Sometimes Chicago weather is my best crafting inspiration. It’s just too cold in Chicago to go to the craft store and buy cute Valentine’s Day stickers and markers so I’m making it work with what I home. I had fun making these recycled Christmas cards from magazines so I thought I’d give it a go for DIY Valentine’s Day cards too.
I especially love the collage heart up close.
And it’s a great kid’s project too. Liam was obsessed with the glue stick.
And my independent Elise made her own DIY collage Valentine’s Day cards.
