Do you ever feel like you want to create something but have absolutely no idea what? If the answer is yes, then same here. The other day, I was mindlessly flicking through my old magazines waiting for inspiration to jump out at me. And nothing was happening. I was turning the pages hopelessly, feeling indifferent and unenthusiastic. Then suddenly I thought, why not use the magazine itself as inspiration. So I took a pair of scissors, grabbed a scrapbook and started cutting.
It was so much fun as there were absolutely no rules. Just cut (it doesn’t even have to be neat) and stick your clippings wherever you want.
I found inspirational quotes, pictures of food, flowers, cushions, cups of tea, anything and everything went in.
After I had finished with the magazine, I added a Polaroid snap from my holiday in Greece as I thought it fitted in perfectly with the colours.
I wanted to keep the pages bright, positive and uplifting.
Marshmallows, yoga and cakes – just a few of my favourite things.
I added in a few of my cute little cat stickers to decorate the pages.
I used a mini inspirational card from treatbox to give the pages an added bit of positivity.
Ta-da! It’s like having a Pinterest board but without an internet connection. The best bit was that it was so relaxing, I switched off for an hour or so and just focused on cutting, sticking and creating. All you need is a magazine or two, a pair of scissors and glue and the rest is up to you and your imagination. Have fun!
