Valentine’s Day DIY Series Part 2: How to Make a Paper Strip Collage

Need a gift idea for your special someone? Look no further! Create your own paper strip collage — such a simple idea that yields beautiful results.

Step One:
Grab the tools and materials: a frame, multi-colored paper, paper cutter, and tape. 

Step Two:
Cut the paper into strips. You can make them as thin or as thick as you want, whichever is more aesthetically pleasing to you. 

Step Three:
Arrange the strips any way you like. The best part about this project is how much of your own personality you can bring to the table. 

Step Four:
Tape the backs of the strips. This step is to ensure that the paper stays together when you put it in the frame. 

Step Five:
Measure and cut the taped strips to fit the frame. 

Step Six:
Place the fitted strips into the frame and, as usual, enjoy your creation!

This project is good for any season or holiday. It also makes for inexpensive art when you have to decorate on a budget. Place a little note inside or use just as a pop of color for a display, this collage really brings that special touch to your home or heart!
