DIY Geometric Heart Artwork

Happy Saturday!  For anyone who has checked out the blog the past couple weeks or who follows me on Instagram, you’ve probably read that I started a new job this past week.  Just wanted to let you all know that my first couple days were super-duper.  I’m loving the new workplace and all the people there.  I’m pumped to go back next week and get started on my projects!

Remember that gallery wall that I keep talking about but have yet to show it in its entirety?  Well, here’s another project that I made for it.  Once I’ve shared all of the individual pieces, I will do a big reveal 🙂

This one is a DIY geometric heart made with scrapbook paper and canvas.

Here’s how I made it.

Step 1: Gather your supplies

In addition to my scrapbook paper and canvas, I used glue, scissors, a pencil (not shown) and a ruler (not shown).

Step 2: Cut your scrapbook paper

You will need 10 squares for this project which will then be cut into 20 triangles.  You can use just a few different pieces of paper or a lot.  I used 10.

Step 3: Arrange your triangles

While I was pretty random with paper placement, I did this step to ensure everything fit.  I’m glad I did because turns out there wasn’t enough space so I had to cut off the heart at the top and the bottom.

Step 4: Measure out the centre

This step helps keep everything straight because you can start in the middle and work outwards.

Step 5: Glue down your triangles

I forgot to take a pic of this step but hopefully you get the idea 🙂

I love how this turned out because with all the different pieces of paper, it is quite interesting to look at (not to mention super unique!)

What do you think?

Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
