Today I’m sharing a sneak peek at a DIY geo paper art project I created for Decoist. It’s super easy and lots of fun! All you need is paper, a cutting tool (scissors or a paper trimmer will do), and the adhesive of your choice. There are no set rules–only the joy of arranging and rearranging colorful cut paper!
Paper scraps are perfect for this project…
While a paper cutter/trimmer isn’t required, it certainly makes life easier. Mine was around $25, and I use it all the time. No paper cutter? Don’t worry–a ruler and scissors will also do!
You can even glue strips of paper to a background page, then cut out shapes once the glue has dried. I love the gradient effect that’s created when paper in the same color family is lined up side by side in strips of varying widths. Below we see a few simple geo art designs:
Have fun trying out different designs and color combinations! If you use a “repositionable” glue stick option, you can peel and stick the shapes in place as needed.
For lots more pics and a full tutorial, head on over to Decoist, where I share project steps, as well as styling tips. After all, this modern art looks sensational when displayed next to geometric objects, rocks, minerals and more.
We’ve got more fun DIY projects planned for September. Stay tuned…
