AN UPCYCLED VALENTINE

I have been crazy busy with work and family and have found absolutely no time to craft. I have however been going through some old projects that I had done and photographed. A lot of them can be found in all my books, The Ultimate Guide to Upcycling, Crafty Cans and Perplexing Plastic and The Christmas Guide to Upcycling and lots can also be found on my blog.

For those of you who are reading my blog for the first time, I am a mixed media artist with degrees in Mathematics. Don’t ask how that happened, it just did 🙂 I love to use materials that would otherwise be thrown away in my art. Things like soda cans, plastic packaging, plastic bags, fabricand paper scraps, old magazines and books, all find their way into my art and craft projects. My books and this blog are both logs of my adventures.
My latest project was an upcycled smash journal. I love what EK Success has developed and I bought and worked on a pretty pink smash journal for my 2011 scrapbook but I wanted to try my hand at an upcycled version.
The current post though is about a project I did a while back and that can be found, along with many others, in my book, Crafty Cans and Perplexing Plastic.
I made these small Valentine, Birthday and Baby cards using some paper scraps and soda cans. Here is how you can make your own.
