Spirograph Cards

I have always been a kid at heart where spirographs are concerned. Love it so much that I will draw spirograph patterns all over my journals, altered books, and greeting cards.

You can have hours of fun just making these spirograph designs. Design with the spirograph set on white cardstock. Color them with metallic gel pens, cut them out and just paste into your cards. Lovely! Try it!

Here are a few of my Spirograph Cards.

Flower Card

This fun card is also done using a spirograph design - another flower. Coloring the design with acrylic paint and then cutting it out to layer it on colored papers. And finally attaching to a square off-white basic blank card.

Here, I also used a photo corner punch to decorate the four corners.
