  • 5x7 sheet of scrap paper
  • Red tissue paper
  • Acrylic paint: blue, green, red, yellow
  • Glitter flakes
  • Small round brush
  • Old book
  • Mod Poge
  • Paint Brush
  • Dried wipes


  1. Cut paper into a 5x7 sheet.
  2. Pick several colors of acrylic paint and paint the background.
  3. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter flakes over the it and let dry.
  4. Use a small round sponge and make dots in the sky.
  5. Tear pages out of an old book.
  6. Tear one of the pages into the shape of a tree trunk, then create tree limbs that extend out of the tree.
  7. Use Mod Podge to adhere the tree to the right side of the paper and let dry.
  8. Tear pages into non-linear shapes, then create a hill on the bottom left side of the paper. Coming out of that hill, create a small trunk for a bush.
  9. Use Mod Podge to adhere the hills and bush to the paper and let dry.
  10. Glue a large doily in the open space above the bush's trunk and let dry.
  11. Fold the red tissue paper into an accordion then draw a half heart up and down the accordion.
  12. Cut out the heart shapes then unfold the accordion to discover several, same-sized hearts.
  13. Using the hearts as leaves and ground flowers, glue the hearts to the paper using Mod Podge.
  14. Sketch tiny birds on the dried wipes, cut them out, and glue them to the paper; on the ground, in the bush, and on the tree limbs and let dry.
  15. Paint the tree trunk, the bush, the birds, and the hearts with acrylic paints and let dry.
  16. In the center of the bush, write “love”, or some other word of endearment.
  17. Write your recipient’s family names on the birds.
  18. Frame.
