Magazine Collage DIY!

Bonjour Mademoiselles! 

Today I have an adorable DIY that is super easy and so much fun! It's a great craft to do with friends or a large group of people if you just want something to do while you hang out. The first time I did a magazine collage I did it alone with music and still enjoyed it. The second time Lexi was helping me and it was even better!

What you'll need:
  • Lots of magazines (pages will be taken out)
  • Scissors
  • Liquid glue (I used Mod Podge)
  • Sponge Brush 
  • Piece of Paper to be used as a base
  • Frame (optional)

Important note* If you are going to put your collage into a frame when you are finished, make sure you measure the paper you're pasting onto before you start pasting! You won't want to have the wrong size of paper when you're finished.

Get started by going through your magazines and cutting out pictures or words you like. You'll want a fairly large stack of snippets so that you have stuff to work with.

Once you've gone through your magazines and have cut out everything you like, you may start pasting. What I did, is arranged everything on my base before gluing. That way I had an idea of how it would look once everything was done. I also found some things don't work in the places I had imagined them to work in, and because I didn't glue first, I was able to see that and fix the problem. 

Out of Frame...

As you can see, it's still super cute without the frame. I also had the thought of hanging them, if you had a bunch of small ones they would be VERY cute strung up. 

 Again, this is extra fun to do with friends. Have some snacks and music available and can I guarantee a good time!
