I’ve always loved collage as an art form, and when I saw some cat collages on Pinterest, I had to give it a try. I had so much fun with this project, the Catster team decided to get in on the action, too!
Papers (everything from an old newspaper or phone book to
Lightweight card stock
There really aren’t any hard-and-fast rules with this project. Do anything from a simple cat shape to an elaborate cat with markings. Here’s how I did mine:
First, I printed a cat shape template I found online, then glued it to a piece of card stock and cut it out.
Then I took another piece of card stock and covered it with cut-up pieces of the papers.
Once the piece of card stock was covered, I placed the cat template over it, traced around it and cut it out.
Then I embellished my cat with eyes, ears, nose, whiskers, stripes and a tail with different colored papers.
Once your cat is done, you can glue it to another piece of paper as a background, frame it, leave it as is or whatever you want — the possibilities are endless.
